Buyer Representation

Real estate transactions are complex. They involve risks and a significant financial investment. Marla A. Maykel can review and negotiate your purchase agreement to assure that your interests are protected and that you are fully advised of your risks and obligations under the contract.

Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or seasoned purchaser, we are here to meet your needs and exceed your expectations. Buying a home is often the biggest investment that people make in their lifetimes. That is why it is so important to have experienced real estate counsel on your side.

Worcester Real Estate Lawyer

At our firm, our experienced attorney will protect your interests throughout the real estate purchase process. We will:

  • Review the offer to purchase
  • Review and negotiate the purchase and sale agreement
  • Assist you through the inspection process
  • Protect your deposit and financial investment
  • Work with the title company to make sure that the property is free of negative encumbrances or liens
  • Advise you of your obligations, including insurance, compliance with codes, lead paint risks or other hazardous material
  • Work closely with your real estate broker to make sure that the sale goes smoothly and that smoke detector/carbon monoxide certificates are acquired and that water readings are submitted
  • Procure certificates of municipal liens and review for possible betterment
  • Procure tape survey, if needed
  • Procure 6D certificate and insurance certificate (if a condominium)
  • Review and inspect the HUD settlement statement for compliance and assurances of lien pay-offs and equitable apportionments
  • Prepare homestead for recording

We are adept at curing impediments to title and negotiating problems that arise due to the inspection. These issues do not have to cancel the closing. Oftentimes, they can be mitigated. Over two decades of legal experience focused on real estate transactions allows us to address these issues and find creative solutions to keep the purchase moving forward.

Homeowner Refinancing Services

Our firm has the knowledge and experience to help you refinance your home at any time. Also, if you don't have a homestead declaration, it is a good time to have us prepare and record one.

Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Commercial real estate transactions are much more complicated than residential and require the assistance of an experienced real estate attorney. A skilled real estate lawyer is able to protect your financial interests by thoroughly examining and negotiating the intricacies of commercial leases, estoppel and other issues.
