Hi, I have a contract for a loan that I need reviewed

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Good morning,

I'm Doug, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please. Also, please understand that review of a document is done only as an additional charge and is not included in your basic question charge.

1. Who drafted this contract?

2. How many pages is it?

3. What size is the font of the print?

Doug

The other party involved. 7 pages, I believe 12 point font. It's pretty straightforward as far as contracts go. My understanding is that, in plainspeak, I'm depositing $50k into an escrow account, and I get that money back after 45 days (or less) no matter what, and receive a fee of $5k for doing so. If I'm missing something I'd like to know.

Hi,

I have reviewed a brief portion of the contract and will make you an offer for the review of the remainder of the document, which I estimate to take at least one hour, and then I will call you to discuss my findings and any concerns.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
