Why Every Realtor Should Work With A Lawyer or Notary Public
Whether you are a newly licensed realtor or have been in the business for years, it can be very beneficial to find yourself a real estate lawyer or notary public to work with.
While realtors may have a good understanding of the conveyancing process, they are unable to answer all of the questions around legal aspects of buying and selling that their clients may have. Having a trusted lawyer or notary public to refer clients to is a good idea for several reasons.
1. It will help you, help your clients
Realtors know that a huge amount of their work comes from referrals. Providing the best experience possible for your clients will increase the likelihood that they will recommend you to their friends, family and colleagues. A nice way to impress your clients is to provide them with a real estate lawyer or notary recommendation to help them with some of the more difficult stages of buying or selling property. This will especially be appreciated by first time buyers, or those who are new to B.C. and unfamiliar with the conveyancing process here.
2. It can speed up the process
The conveyancing process is one part of a property sale that can easily get delayed if not done diligently. All it takes is for one party to incorrectly complete one of the numerous documents and the completion date could get pushed back.
Directing your clients to a lawyer or notary public who is well versed in real estate transactions will ensure that the process goes smoothly and you receive your commission without delay.
3. You can learn more about the legal aspects of real estate sales and purchases
As a realtor, people look to you as an expert in all things property. Establishing a relationship with an experienced real estate notary and lawyer can expand your real estate legal knowledge even more.
