The most exciting thing about buying or selling a new home is, by far, the closing phase. It can be equal parts exciting and terrifying. For either feeling, the Cardwell Firm is here for you.

We offer top-tier service in real estate law, estate planning, small business, sports law and more. Contact us today for a consultation!
The state of Mississippi requires an attorney to be involved in the preparation of a deed. However, in circumstances in which deeds are involved in cash deals, a lawyer is not legally required. Keep in mind that although a real estate attorney is optional in those instances, this may lead to unintentional oversight.
Having an experienced real estate lawyer means you can be sure a thorough title search has been conducted. This, in turn, results in less stress for you and more time spent enjoying the home-buying and selling experience. This gives you all the information you need to make the best decision for you and your family.
On the flip side, as a seller forgoing having a realtor, you would benefit from having a real estate attorney draw up a contract. This way, legal documents are already prepared for when you receive an offer.
Other items that you might overlook in the real estate transaction process are inspections. Anyone in the market to buy or sell a home in Covington County, MS, can be expected to have termite, mold and septic inspections done.
Mississippi usually has one real estate attorney handle both the seller and buyer side of a real estate transaction. Our firm’s focus is maintaining confidentiality and diligence for both sides.
While having a real estate agent is always recommended, having an attorney who practices real estate law on your side is also a great idea. Additional caveats require special attention guaranteed by a real estate attorney, like taxes or the responsibilities of sellers versus buyers in the process.
Typically, a real estate agent’s job is to find you either a) a home if you are a buyer or b) a buyer if you are a seller. Special cases also require more detailed care that our real estate law firm handles effortlessly. In those cases, the significance of having an experienced and focused real estate attorney really can make all the difference.
For instance, in addition to real estate law, the Cardwell Firm has practice areas in sports law and estate planning. In this very unique situation, an NCAA collegiate athlete may need special assistance where real estate law meets sports law, estate planning, and small business law. In this example, having experience in NIL (name, image, likeness) as a specialty focus helps us better assist these kinds of clients.
The fact is that having a full spectrum law firm would benefit any client needing more than just one particular service. We pride ourselves in offering all our clients that kind of cross-category assistance when needed.
Buying and selling real estate can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Having a reliable and compassionate real estate law firm on your side can help alleviate that burden of stress and make the experience more enjoyable. At the Cardwell Firm, we understand that diligence and reward go hand in hand and are ready to assist you in your real estate law needs.
