Residential Real Estate Contract Attorney Review

In New Jersey, residential real estate contracts contain an attorney review clause. The attorney review clause sets forth the right of both buyers and sellers to have an attorney review the contract within three business days from the date each side receives a fully executed contract. Most contracts to buy and sell real estate are prepared by real estate agents or brokers and often use standard, or form language. However, one size does not always fit all and clauses applicable to one transaction may not be suitable in your transaction. During the review period, an attorney can identify any potential problems and ensure that each party’s interests are adequately protected by disapproving the contract or advising a client to make changes to it.

It is important to exercise your right to an attorney review to ensure your rights and obligations are protected and understood. Once the contract is finalized, the buyer and seller are bound by its terms and may later regret if they did not understand all of the terms or if the terms are not what they intended. At Zehner & Daly, we undertake a careful review of real estate contacts and meet with you to advise you of your rights and responsibilities, and advise if your contract should be disproved or if changes to the contract are needed.
