Real Estate Contracts Lawyers in Denver Helping You Avoid Costly Legal Disputes
Purchasing a home or property is one of the largest decisions you’ll likely ever make. Real estate transactions, as such, warrant attention to detail and support from two advocates—a good real estate agent and a real estate lawyer.

What is a Real Estate Contract?
A real estate contract is a document between two or more parties involved in the purchase, sale, exchange, or transfer of real estate.
The purpose of a real estate contract is to outline the expectations of the buyer and seller of the home, and it covers several terms, including:
- Terms of finance
- Seller assist
- Home inspection
- Fixture and appliances
- Closing date
- Sale of existing home
A real estate contract is comprised of three main components, such as an official offer that includes negotiated terms, purchase price, closing costs, and contingency. A counter offer presents modified terms if appropriate, and once these two steps are complete, produce a legally-binding real estate contract.
Ragab Law Firm, P.C. and our team of knowledgeable real estate lawyers can offer legal guidance in the drafting of a real estate contract to ensure you’re protected before and after the purchase of your home or property.
What if I Don’t Have a Real Estate Contract?
A novice or poorly trained real estate agent might not stress the importance of a well-written real estate contract when purchasing a home. This is to the detriment of the buyer or the seller should something go wrong during the transaction.
Clear and concise language in a legal contract, any legal contract for that matter, is the only thing that stands between you and a potential legal dispute. The legal wording of contracts, or lack thereof, has implications such as misinterpretation, legal conflicts, and costly mistakes.
It also has an impact on the obligations of both parties and how they’re interpreted.
If you don’t have a real estate contract or you choose a casual negotiation with poorly written terms, you could run into a number of costly situations. One example of this could include buying a home with defects or issues that end up costing you time and money in repairs and attorney fees.
This is, unfortunately, one of the most common situations when purchasing a home. With a real estate lawyer and a contract in place, we can protect you and your finances and pursue damages and compensation.
