Many people in Illinois have been involved in either the purchase or sale of residential real estate. These can be exciting transactions, as they usually mean someone is getting a new home. However, real estate transactions can also present complex legal issues in a hurry, if the details are ignored.
Paying attention to the details is part of the right approach that Illinois residents should have when they are getting started on a real estate transaction, and throughout the entire process until closing. Errors in paperwork, such as contract details or home inspection documents, may be more common than most people would think. A careful review of each document involved in the purchase or sale or residential real estate is crucial.
Besides contracts and other paperwork, other legal issues might arise during the purchase or sale or residential real estate as well. Issues like title concerns, easements on the property or even boundary disputes can slam the brakes on any real estate transaction. Delays can be costly for all parties involved and may jeopardize the entire deal.
