When​ ​do​ ​I​ ​engage​ ​a​ ​lawyer​ ​when​ ​I​ ​am​ ​selling​ ​my​ ​home​ ​privately​ ​in​ ​Cape​ ​Breton?

The​ ​earlier​ ​in​ ​the​ ​process​ ​you​ ​speak​ ​to​ ​a​ ​lawyer,​ ​the​ ​more​ ​informed​ ​you​ ​will​ ​be​ ​in knowing​ ​what​ ​the​ ​essential​ ​terms​ ​will​ ​be​ ​required​ ​in​ ​a​ ​sales​ ​contract.​ ​If​ ​a​ ​real​ ​estate agent​ ​is​ ​not​ ​involved​ ​then​ ​you​ ​will​ ​need​ ​to​ ​consult​ ​a​ ​lawyer​ ​either​ ​to​ ​prepare​ ​a​ ​sales agreement​ ​for​ ​you​ ​or​ ​alternatively​ ​review​ ​a​ ​written​ ​offer​ ​you​ ​may​ ​receive.​ ​In​ ​the preliminary​ ​stages​ ​of​ ​the​ ​transaction,​ ​you​ ​should​ ​contact​ ​a​ ​lawyer​ ​to​ ​obtain​ ​a​ ​list​ ​of important​ ​items​ ​that​ ​will​ ​have​ ​to​ ​be​ ​addressed​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​sales​ ​process.​ ​For​ ​us,​ ​if ultimately​ ​we​ ​are​ ​representing​ ​a​ ​buyer​ ​or​ ​a​ ​seller,​ ​then​ ​generally​ ​it​ ​costs​ ​nothing​ ​more to​ ​make​ ​the​ ​preliminary​ ​call​ ​and​ ​obtain​ ​some​ ​up​ ​front​ ​advice​ ​before​ ​you​ ​list.​ ​Once​ ​the terms​ ​of​ ​sale​ ​have​ ​been​ ​verbally​ ​agreed​ ​upon,​ ​it​ ​will​ ​then​ ​be​ ​critical​ ​that​ ​they​ ​be reduced​ ​into​ ​a​ ​formal​ ​agreement​ ​which​ ​will​ ​clearly​ ​set​ ​out​ ​the​ ​terms​ ​of​ ​sale.​
