From Buying a House to Facing Foreclosure: Your NJ Real Estate Attorney Can Help

Whether you're buying your first home or filing for foreclosure, it's important to know that mistakes in contracts and real estate documentation can lead to expensive legal fees to fix the error. Working with an experienced NJ real estate attorney will ensure that you get the results you need.

On Behalf of Veitengruber Law | Aug 09,2022

Your home is one of the most significant investments you will ever make and is likely to be your most important asset. Buying or selling a home are complex real estate transactions with specific legal requirements. Errors in real estate transactions are all too common. Mistakes in contracts and real estate documentation can lead to expensive legal fees to fix the error or even the loss of the property itself. Working with a knowledgeable NJ real estate attorney can ensure you have the best advice while negotiating the transaction. Veitengruber Law has the experience you need to help you close the deal and protect your rights.

Real estate terms and processes can be confusing. Our job as your real estate attorney is to ensure that all parties fully understand the transaction. We can help you avoid costly mistakes when buying or selling a home. In NJ, buyers and sellers can enter into a valid legal contract created by a real estate agent without the involvement of legal experts.

After signing this contract, both parties have three days, known as the attorney review period, during which they can have their attorney look over the contract for any issues. During this time, we will check the title and ensure all the terms are acceptable. If there are any problems, we assist our clients in presenting their concerns to the other party with suggestions for any desired revisions of the contract. We aim to help you achieve your real estate goals while protecting your investment.

Even if you are not buying or selling, leasing and renting present different complexities. When a landlord enters into a contract with a tenant, both are afforded specific rights and are expected to uphold various obligations. These expectations must align with local and state laws and the terms of the agreement signed by both parties. We can review rental contracts before you sign to ensure the contract follows local and state law. We can also help you defend your tenant rights if your landlord is infringing upon those rights.

Because your home is likely your biggest investment and most valuable asset, the idea of losing it can be devastating. We help NJ homeowners stay in their homes when they are facing foreclosure. If you have fallen behind on mortgage payments, we have proven strategies to help you stay in your home and get on top of your mortgage. We can work with your loan provider to put a loan modification in place, which can help you close the gap on your past-due debts.

If foreclosure proceedings have already begun, we can provide expert foreclosure defense. If foreclosure is imminent, we can help you file for bankruptcy. Filing for bankruptcy will initiate the automatic stay on eviction and keep you in your home while we figure out your next steps. We have helped many NJ homeowners avoid foreclosure and stay in their homes. The sooner you come to us, the more options we have to protect your homeowner rights and save your home.
