If you’re selling real estate in Washington, we’d be happy to assist you.
Your main goals, undoubtedly, are to sell the property for the highest price, as fast as you can.
However, you also need to focus on conducting the transaction properly, so that once you’re done, you’re truly done. No problems cropping up before, during, or after closing…no liability exposure that could follow you for years…no looming litigation.
Our primary legal solutions for sellers of real estate include:
If you plan to sell a property, we can draft a real estate contract that will protect your interests and be in accordance with the structure of the law in Washington. When real estate contracts are poorly written, with missing clauses or confusing language, they can lead to a host of problems. Vague or confusing contract language can trip up the best of deals, leading to protracted negotiations, delayed closings, scuttled sales, even litigation.
In our experience, the most common issues with real estate sales contracts involve:
- ambiguous contract language
- contract timeframes
- disclosures, or lack thereof
- title exceptions, like easements
- restrictive covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs)
If a potential buyer has presented you with a contract or is attempting to make revisions to your contract, we can review the real estate contract for you.
