What Does a Real Estate Lawyer Do?

You have decided to take that big step and you are purchasing a home. You are ready for the memories of family celebrations, Super Bowl games, and so many more to be made in this important and critical investment, and you need a real estate lawyer to ensure that you are protected in the long process of buying a home.

A homebuyer benefits from having a real estate lawyer in a few different ways. To find out how you can be protected during your property closing, contact Matheson Law Firm, P.A. today in Charlotte and the surrounding areas.


Real estate lawyers oversee the purchase of property and anything that comes with the property, such as fixtures and the appliances inside the house. A real estate attorney will also oversee the important documents such as property management, title, mortgage documents, and transfer documents. A real estate attorney will ensure that all of these moving parts are done correctly and in the best interest of the buyer. There are many documents that the attorney can help create as well, such as Closing Disclosure and related mortgage documentation if the buyer is financing the purchase through a lender.

Responsibilities include:

  • Reviewing documents: Many documents need to be completed, signed, and exchanged during closing. From titles and deeds to insurance forms and security instruments, we’ll review everything and resolve any legal issues that may arise. Learn More
  • Providing recording services: Certain aspects of real estate transactions will be public information. Recording is when your deed and/or mortgage is filed with the county, dated, time-stamped, and sometimes uploaded to a website for public access. Recording is vital to prevent ownership disputes. It can also be essential to qualifying for a mortgage. We’ll handle this for you to ensure it’s done correctly.
  • Receiving and disbursing closing proceeds: The closing is exciting for both homebuyers and sellers. Buyers receive ownership of the property, and sellers take the proceeds of the sale. We disburse closing proceeds to facilitate the process and prevent any issues.

A real estate attorney is critical when it comes to property, especially if you are their client and the purchaser of the property.
