Why You Need an Independent and Experienced Real Estate Attorney

The laws of South Carolina require that a licensed attorney manage and handle real estate transactions. The Supreme Court of this state has held that such transactions constitute the practice of law and that all aspects of the transaction must be done under the supervision of an attorney. (Doe v. McMaster. 355 S.C. 773, 585 S.E. 2d 773 (2003).

Today's real estate environment is not only complex but risky for those not properly represented and advised. The FBI has called mortgage fraud an "epidemic" in recent years.

Dishonest lenders, unscrupulous mortgage brokers and other real estate professionals can mislead honest and unwary individuals into transactions that are not in their best interest and, at worst, are fraudulent and illegal. The South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs' Mortgage Fraud Report describes common fraudulent schemes and offers steps that individuals can take to avoid becoming victims.

An independently selected and experienced real estate attorney can represent your interests and help protect you from the "epidemic" of fraud.
