Finding a closing attorney around JC/Hoboken area

Asked by Agmo, 07302 Tue Oct 27, 2009

Hi, I would appreciate some suggestions on finding a good closing attorney. Is there a good website/forum commenting/reviewing on closing attorneys around JC/ Hoboken Area? What should I keep in mind when looking for a closing attorney? Thanks!

It depends on what your purchasing the questions you may want to ask. These are some of the types condo, one-family, multi-family, short sale, foreclosure and etc. I can help you with what questions to ask for these and more.

You want an attorney who is familiar with local real estate guidelines and one who will be available to answer your questions or can handle issues in a timely fashion. I have a list of attorneys that can fit your needs if you would like you can reach out to me and I can provide you that list. After you get the list you should interview at least 3. This will help you decide whom you would work best with. You’re building your team. Do you have a mortgage agent? I can also give you advice on selecting one. Do you have a Realtor?

Visit http://www.kannekt.com for lists of Attorneys and reviews.

Call and interview at least 3 and see who you're most comfortable talking to. Ask about their fees and feel them out. One of the biggest complaints clients have with attorneys is accessiblity and responsiveness. You will want someone who is easy to talk to and who will take as much time as you need to make you feel comfortable about one of the most important transactions in your life.

I can provide you with a list of a few Attorneys that I trust and regularly recommend to my clients.

Please email me if you would like to give them a try.

Good luck!

I have an attorney list that I provide my clients with. It is imperative that your attorney specializes in real estate and will communicate directly both with you and with your real estate agent.

Please feel free to contact me for a copy of my list.

When hiring an attorney, I recommend using someone who is real estate specific and communicates very well over email. You'll be surprised at how many lawyers do not use or believe in email. Many buyers in this area cannot take calls at work during the day so email makes everything easier.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I'll be happy to assist.
