Home Purchase

When you buy a house, you sign your name to stacks of legal documents. But do you fully understand each document? Most people do not. That is why you want a lawyer to review the documents for you before your closing. We can identify any issues that may arise and stop problems before they start.

For residential real estate purchases, contact Faupel Musser Love's Ann Arbor real estate attorneys. We have the experience and knowledge to assist you with the purchase of homes or property throughout Michigan. In addition to reviewing the documents, we can litigate on your behalf.

Protecting Your Interests When Buying a Home

If you are buying residential real estate without a realtor or directly from the seller, it is especially important to work with a real estate lawyer to prevent problems. In these situations, you need someone to look out for your interests. We will be your advocate during the sale.

You also want an attorney if the property has unusual features or is next to something such as a wetland or a future road. Sometimes property deeds can commit you to special assessments in the future of which you or the seller are unaware. We will make sure you know about potential issues before you buy.

Residential real estate services we provide include:

  • Reviewing the property purchase agreement
  • Reviewing the title commitment and contingency
  • Reviewing homeowners' association rules
  • Reviewing land contracts
  • Reviewing mortgage documents
  • Attending the closing

We can also litigate any items that were not disclosed before the sale. Our attorneys are very experienced in all areas of real estate law. We can handle zoning issues, easements, realtor disputes, construction liens, defects, and can help clear up title issues. If you have a lien on a property that you need to foreclose upon, we can assist you with that as well.

Before you purchase residential real estate, please call our Ann Arbor office at (734) 677-0776 or contact Faupel Musser Love online or via e-mail.
