Representing Buyers and Sellers In For Sale By Owner Transactions

If you are a homeowner selling your home without a realtor, directly to a buyer and do not need to market your home, you can benefit from legal representation. An attorney can prepare and review the purchase and sale documents, advise clients during the escrow period, and ensure that the documents comply with Washington’s real estate law. Employing an experienced real estate attorney to oversee the transaction can ensure that the sale goes smoothly and without complications. And knowledgeable legal representation can prevent common mistakes from occurring when selling the home.

If you are buying a home, you also need to know and understand the purchase agreement. We can interpret and explain the agreement and the contingencies and deadlines you will be expected to meet.

The attorneys at Marine View Law provide legal representation for individuals selling and buying real estate in Des Moines and western Washington. Renee Roman is a lawyer with more than 20 years of experience in real estate representation. Her services along with the services of our firm provide peace of mind for you and protect your interests in every stage of the process.

Real Estate Law In Washington

We are familiar with the law as it applies to real estate transactions. For example, disclosure requirements are a seller’s responsibility. Whether you are a buyer or seller, you need to understand such disclosures and how to protect yourself. If you choose to sell or buy a home on your own, you may consider hiring our real estate attorney to prepare the purchase documents and advise you on the sale. We prepare real estate purchase contracts that meet all current laws, and we will advise you regarding proper disclosure. We will help you understand the complexities of the escrow process. Our attorney’s contributions will be an invaluable service for you. If you already have a proposed agreement we can review that for you as well.

More importantly, we can bring issues to your attention at the beginning of the transaction so that we can discuss them with you early on. Otherwise, such issues can derail a closing. When selling with a complete understanding of the law, you are more likely to complete all paperwork correctly and take the necessary steps to ensure a legally binding sale, and most importantly, a successful transaction.
