I agree with John about the $1,000 to $1,500 fee. You should be certain that the attorney is charging you a flat fee. If the attorney wants to charge you by the hour, there tto much risk that your fee will be excessive. Our team will be happy to refer you to attorneys that we have worked with in the past that we feel did excellent work in protecting their clients and getting the deal done.

Hi Askar,

Every attorney charges different fees. Those fees can range from $950-$1300. The main thing to remember is that you want an attorney who knows what they are doing and are not so busy that you can never reach them. Communication is key! If you like, I can recommend two attorneys that I know for a fact are great.

Hello,

There are some very important necessary steps to take before considering purchasing a home. The first and most important thing to do is get pre-approved by a lender. The more extensive the pre-approval the better of a view you have on what you will qualify for thus allowing to look for properties that directly match your criteria. Take the time and find a serious professional that has been working with home Buyers and let them go over important details of your search. The average cost of an attorney is around 1000-1600. Remember you get what you pay for.

Hello,

Its very important that you choose an attorney that will be able to not only give you a good price but give you good service and look over a contract thoroughly before having the client sign. I have worked with Steven Joseph Colon, Esq for a while and they are fantastic. Take the time and give them a call

Askar,

The average cost is between $950-$1300. I have worked with the following attorney in the area and my clients have been quite happy with his service. You can contact him and other attorneys for an estimate.

You can also contact the Legal Referral Service for an attorney.

If you are purchasing a foreclosure/shortsale property, you should discuss this with your attorney and verify that they have experience with these types of transactions.

Good luck.

Good evening Askar,

When determining closing costs for my clients, I always estimate a real estate attorney for a Bronx real estate transaction charges between $1000 and $1800. You should interview the Attorney and review fees; more complicated transactions (and foreclosures are often more complicated), may incur additional fees.

Askar, an attorney's fees can differ depending on the location, the property and the services included. In my experience they can range anywhere between $950 and $1800. If you need a referral, I will be happy to provide you with a couple of excellent attorneys in either Bronx or Westchester County.

Hiring an attorney that specializes in real estate for all related paperwork is highly advisable, why not protect yourself...as for the cost, each attorney sets his/her own fee; some may be hourly, some may have a flat fee, therefore consider shopping around or ask people you may know for referrals....
