Whether you are buying or selling your residence, the attorneys and staff of CHARLES T. NEWLAND & ASSOCIATES will be in constant communication with you and your realtor to take you through every stage of the contract: from attorney review and inspection periods, mortgage and home sale contingency clauses, preparation of any and all closing documents and of course, representation at the closing itself, all for one set fee. We also offer experienced legal representation in the areas of commercial purchases and sales, leases and 1031 exchanges for a competitive and reasonable fee.
In many states, the parties to a real estate transaction don’t use attorneys because it is presumed that the buyer’s lender is aligned with the interests of the buyer and the title company will do the document preparation for the seller. That is not the case in the State of Illinois. Don’t make the mistake of being unrepresented by competent legal counsel for your real estate transaction. Contact CHARLES T. NEWLAND & ASSOCIATES to assist you through the process and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
