A real estate attorney is a licensed legal professional who provides legal services and counsel in property and real estate law. They consider all legal aspects of clients’ cases to provide sound legal advice. They direct complex due diligence and draft and review legal documents such as contracts, abstracts, and agreements to ensure they meet stringent requirements for risk, completion, and accuracy. A real estate attorney negotiates real estate transaction terms, facilitates the transfer of title, and interfaces with city boards and agencies to avoid legal issues. They represent their client at real estate closings, in real estate disputes, and real estate litigation. Real estate attorneys typically work in an office environment for law firms, title companies, or real estate development companies.
