Legal Guidance Throughout Residential Real Estate Transactions

The purchase or sale of residential real estate property is typically one of the most significant financial transactions you will make. Resolving such matters on your own can be appealing. However, involving an attorney can help to both protect your interests and shield you from risk.

At McEvoy Law, we represent buyers, sellers and homeowners with unique issues that affect their current or future properties. Whether you are in the process of selling your home, are concerned about an easement on your property or are facing contract issues, we can provide you with guidance to help you overcome the obstacles you face.

Representing Buyers And Sellers In Significant Transactions

In Maryland, a residential real estate transaction requires the services of an attorney and a title insurance company, even when a real estate agent is not involved. We provide buyers and sellers with assistance throughout the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) process, including:

  • Drafting and reviewing a purchase agreement
  • Assisting with provisions for obtaining financing
  • Recommending title insurance companies
  • Examining title status and outstanding issues
  • Advising on the tax consequences of a sale or purchase
  • Providing ongoing counsel throughout a sale or purchase
  • Representing your interests against the other party

Selling your home on your own effectively cuts out the "middleman," which is the role of the real estate agent. While agents provide significant value on complex real estate matters, choosing to complete the process yourself can save money and keep the process within your own control.

Experience With Easement Disputes

Easement is the legal right to land that belongs to someone else for a distinct purpose. As part of the property, easements do not change when the title of the property changes. Disagreements can arise when the existence of an easement is questioned or when one party is accused of abusing the easement. Whether you are a new property owner or a dispute has erupted over an easement, we can provide you with your options and identify the best course of action to take.
