A Connecticut Attorney Can Help You Navigate The Legal Process
Connecticut law does not require that all real estate transactions involve an attorney, however, there are some transactions that do. If you are the purchaser and you are required to have title insurance, you will need the services of an attorney. Additionally, there are some elements of a real estate transaction that can be considered similar to practicing law, and only an attorney is permitted to do those. Because of these requirements, most real estate transactions will need to involve an attorney in at least some aspect of the process.
There are other pitfalls in the real estate process that you will need to watch out for. Did you know that giving advice or representing the interest of someone else in a real estate transaction can constitute practicing law? If you help someone by drafting a document for them to use, or if you give them advice or counsel that would meet the statutory definition of practicing law in Connecticut, then you could be in violation of the law and have committed a class D felony. That could carry up to a $5,000 fine or five years in prison or both.
