The Law Office of Ramon Vega III, PLLC can help you with your real estate transaction
I cannot stress enough the importance of obtaining legal advice when dealing with a real estate transaction. For some, real estate could mean purchasing a home. For others, it may be purchasing their first investment property. Whatever the case may be, the purchase of real estate is probably the highest expenditure of money one will make in their lifetime. Whatever purchase you are going to make, you should try to minimize, or remove, the risk of something going wrong during this process. And I could not stress this enough, but you should NEVER sign a document if you do not know what you are signing.
If you are considering undertaking a real estate transaction, The Law Office of Ramon Vega III, PLLC can help you navigate your way through the entire process.
- Purchase/Sale – Assist clients in the purchase or sale of Texas residential and commercial real estate transactions.
- Representation – Represent buyers, sellers, landlords, contractors, lenders and investors.
- Knowledge – Knowing how the process works before you enter into a transaction will probably save you money. It is very important to talk to an attorney before you talk to the buyer, seller, lender, landlord, investor, or contractor.
- Consultations – If all you want/need is a consultation, The Law Office of Ramon Vega III, PLLC provides consultations regarding questions a buyer, seller, lender, landlord, investor, or contractor may have regarding a real estate transaction. It’s always better to consult before you enter into a transaction, but it certainly never hurts to know what your rights or responsibilities are once you signed a contract.
- Buying Property – Assist clients throughout the buying process, which includes, preparation and/or review of the sales contract, recommend changes to the sales contract, highly recommending the purchase of a title/tax policy to insure title is clear and taxes have been paid, reviewing and making changes to the title commitment if necessary, reviewing and discussing with client the closing documents. Once again, NEVER sign something if you do not know what you are signing (especially when there are thousands of dollars at stake). When representing a buyer, the preparation of the sales contract will differ than when representing the seller.
- Selling Property – Assist clients throughout the selling process, which includes, preparation and/or review of the sales contract, recommend changes to the sales contract, review and recommend changes to the title commitment, and review and discuss the closing documents. As mentioned before, NEVER sign something if you do not know what you are signing (especially when there are thousands of dollars at stake). When representing a seller, the preparation of the sales contract will differ than when representing the buyer.
- Building a Home – Discuss the home building process with the client, which includes obtaining a home loan, choosing the right contractor, signing a construction contract that is beneficial to the homeowner (and not just the builder), making sure the builder pays the subcontractors, what happens if the builder does not finish on time, what happens if no work is being done on a daily basis, etc.
- Document preparation – Prepare documents as part of the representation if that is all that is needed. This may include the sales/purchase contract, deed, promissory note, deed of trust, release of lien, affidavits, assignment of contract, etc.
- Broker/Lawyer – Combined broker/lawyer representation in the real estate transaction
- Closings – Perform closings from beginning to end, from a cash deal to an assumption, to an owner finance transaction.
- Wrap-around or Contract for Deed – If you still decide to do it or have already done it, The Law Office of Ramon Vega III, PLLC can help in advising you about them and the dangers of entering into these types of transactions and minimizing the risks or consequences of doing so.
- Clearing Title – Help clients clear title to their property. This is done so an owner can sell or obtain a loan on their property, or simply to remove an encumbrance an owner knows should not be there. Clearing title can be as simple as filing an affidavit, recording a release of lien, or preparing and filing an affidavit of heirship to show the heirs of a deceased property. Clearing title can also be more costly and time-consuming by having to file a lawsuit to determine the rightful owners or have the court determine the correct boundaries of a property.
- Loaning Money – Before you lend money, The Law Office of Ramon Vega III, PLLC can prepare the loan documents you need for your particular transaction whether it be a secured or an unsecured loan.
- Leases – Assist clients with the review and/or drafting of a residential or commercial lease. If you have questions regarding your current lease, you can set up a consultation to have your questions answered.f
