You need a lawyer or a notary to handle a property conveyance and protect your legal interests whether you are buying or selling a property. He or she can answer legal questions and/or review contracts for you as necessary througout the sales or purchase process. Having a lawyer/notary involved in the process early on will give you peace of mind and ensure that things go as smoothly as possible.
Remember that a Lawyer/Notary should:
be a licensed full-time lawyer/notary specializing in real estate transactions.
be local and understand real estate laws, regulations and restrictions.
have realistic and acceptable fees.
be able to explain things in plain language.
