Buying a home is a major transaction. You want every detail to be handled capably and efficiently, so you can have peace of mind at closing and for years to come. Similarly, when it comes time to sell your home, you want to get the most out of your investment. At Rogers Law Office, I draw on extensive knowledge of Illinois real estate law and financing to represent clients in real estate transactions. I have a thorough understanding of residential markets and can guide you through the process from contract to closing, handling title, insurance and mortgage issues and all other concerns relevant to the transaction.
If you are buying, selling or building a home in Illinois, I work to ensure that all legal matters are handled smoothly and without loose ends. I help clients throughout the multi-step transaction process, delivering informed guidance from contract to closing. I also represent clients’ interests when disputes arise over contracts, titles, permits, land use, zoning, financing and other issues. As an experienced real estate attorney, I assist with:
Whether you are working with a realtor or are going the “for sale by owner” route, I can answer any questions and resolve any problems that arise. Real estate contracts often include confusing language that can make it hard for most people to understand what they are signing. I carefully comb through all paperwork and fine print and advise you on any risks I see and any actions you should take to remedy them. I work hard from start to finish to make real estate matters easier and less stressful for my clients.
The closing is the moment when all the preliminary work of the sale comes to fruition. But it’s also the moment when unpleasant surprises can come up. For example, prior mortgages and liens may not have been settled or discrepancies in documentation might suggest there’s a problem with the title. A closing attorney must be experienced and vigilant enough to spot red flags and scrutinize paperwork in advance so the data on the documents match and comport with the parties’ understanding. After more than 20 years of real estate law practice, I am prepared to overcome obstacles to a successful closing, so you can get the benefit of the bargain you’ve made.
