When you go to sell your house, why do you need legal assistance to complete the transaction?
The sale of your house or other property enters the legal field for several reasons:
The sale documents must be witnessed by a lawyer or notary
The financial adjustments including taxes, and water and sewermust be reviewed and explained to the seller
The receipt of monies is done on professional undertakings that allow for registration and release of funds to occur on the same day
Mortgages usually need to be discharged to provide clear title to the purchaser and this can only be done through the same undertaking procedure
The lawyer must pay the appropriate money to the bank and follow up with documents to have the seller’s obligations are cleared
