You Do Have Rights

And you need to know them to enforce them!

Legal Protection

It exists for you in every transaction. When you buy a home it may seem like the only thing you have are bills. Everyone wants money for something. But the fact is you also have rights. You are legally protected in every real estate transaction whether you are the seller or the buyer.

The best way to protect your legal rights is to hire an attorney. The next best way is to arm yourself with information.

Your Rights

  • Product warranties

  • Waiting periods

  • Pre-closing inspections

  • The Right to Walk Away
