Can My Real Estate Agent Guide Me Through Legal Real Estate Transactions While Buying or Selling My Home?
The short answer is "maybe." Good real estate agents are knowledgeable of Florida real estate laws and customs and can guide you through simple real estate transactions. However, they are not lawyers and every real estate transaction involves complex legal documents, language and court filings. Real estate agents can advise about processes, home values, economic factors, etc., but they cannot give legal advice. If you experience or anticipate any legal issues, only a qualified real estate lawyer can give you the answers you need.
