Before going to a lawyer.
Before going to a lawyer, there are a number of things to explore and consider. Among other things, whether the lawyer has experience in housing counseling and what you expect from a lawyer.
This checklist gives you an overview of these things:
Choose a lawyer who specializes in housing counseling.
Some lawyers specialize in home trading. It is an advantage to choose a housing lawyer who has experience and expertise in the area.
The lawyer must state the price
The lawyer is obliged to provide you with information about the most important parts of their assistance and how much they have to pay, or alternatively specify the way, it will be calculated. He should do so on his own initiative and in writing.
Find out what you need help with that is covered in fees.
If it is advertised with a special low price, it may be related to the fact that the lawyer, for example, cannot advise on financing the home purchase. The price for buying a lawyer’s advice today is usually dependent on housing prices and advice.
Prepare your expectations
If the lawyer and client go wrong with one another, it is often because their expectations for the negotiations are not adjusted. Before contacting a lawyer, it is a good idea to make some considerations. For example, it may be what you expect from the lawyer, how often you want me to talk about the case when the case is in place, and how long you intend to spend on the case.
Get a written appointment!
Have the lawyer write down the price, requirements and expectations in a document.
