Although homebuyers are not always obligated to hire a real estate attorney, there are a number of reasons to seek legal assistance for real estate transactions. Real estate attorneys can perform such tasks as searching for property titles and drafting purchase contracts. Although the latter task may seem simple, given the use of standardized forms, a real estate attorney can draft complex agreements in special circumstances and help homebuyers understand unusual terms in the purchase contract.

Further, if homebuyers plan to rent a property for a specified time before purchasing it, they may benefit from the assistance of a real estate attorney to draft the lease agreement. A real estate attorney can also negotiate repairs identified on the home inspection and assist homebuyers in special circumstances, such as in the purchase of a home with potential structural problems.
