Despite your financial worry that a lawyer’s fee would cost too much for a simple decision such as buying a house, it would really be very ideal and would be very beneficial for your part if you hire legal services before you even invest on real estate.

Here are the reasons why:

Lawyers can negotiate, create, or review a sales contract on your behalf.
They can scrutinize all the terms and conditions included in the contract.
They will determine if there are any standing legal problems on the property you’re going to buy.
They will help you review legal documents such as CC&Rs if you so decide to purchase properties in a planned unit development.
They will help you if a seller tries to get off from the contract because they had a better offer from another buyer.
They will help you legally get out of a deal or legally break the contract if somehow you found something wrong with the property.

So to answer the question, YES, you will need a real estate lawyer while you buy a home or a real estate property.
