Certain states consider a real estate transaction – the buying or selling of real property to be a legal transaction. In these states, the parties in the transaction must be represented by an attorney:
- New York
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Real estate attorneys bring a wealth of knowledge to real estate transitions, whether required by your state or not. Unlike real estate agents who may represent both buyers and sellers within the same transaction, a real estate attorney can only represent you and your interests in the translation.
