Did you know that Michigan law requires that brokers advise purchasers to obtain an attorney to represent their interest in virtually all real estate transactions? It's true, and while most Purchasers do not hear it from their broker, the language is usually in the fine print of the Purchase Agreement the Broker or Realtor provides to you.
The reason the requirement exists is that the Broker has a financial incentive to close and receive a commission. There are many other concerns which the buyer or seller may have that can be addressed by an attorney.
We can help you if you want someone to review the closing documents, or if you want us to help represent you in dealing with the parties. However, we can always do more for you if we are involved before the Purchase Agreement or Building Contract is signed.
Most of these cases are handled on a flat fee basis.
