Hua, Home Buyer in 10310

Anyone knows how much a realty lawyer typically charge for buying a house? I live in Staten Island, NYC

Asked by Hua, 10310 Mon Dec 29, 2008

I called a lawyer who quotes $1200 for the entire home buying process. Just want to make sure it's not over the board.

I have 2 real estate attorneys that if my office recommends them they charge $750.

Real estate lawyers are free to set their fees. You will be able to get names of many lawyers that we can send to you. Ask them question about fees, and other possible costs. And try to find out what they will or can't do on the transactions. Lawyers will not tell you that he may think you are not smart about buying or selling property, His job is to make sure that you're getting what you want to buy.

Hi Hua,

Attorneys fees vary just like Realtors fees vary. A Realtor should not make comment or judgement about an attorneys fee. An attorney should not make a comment or judgement in regard to a Realtors fee. There is no set fee. I have a list of names of excellent Real Estate attorneys that practice here on Staten Island. If you want me to send you some names I will be happy to do so.

You should make a few phone calls get some fee quotes and choose someone you feel comfortable with.
