Customer Question

I got a fairly straight forward contract to buy my office from another person how much does it cost to have an attorney review it? His attorney drew it up.

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

NC

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

He has just handed me the contract and is waiting for me to sign it. It has the agreed upon cost of the building etc.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Nothing I can think of ha

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

  1. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.
  2. Please ignore any reports from the site regarding your expert being offline or time the site says it takes to get an answer, they are incorrect as delays in replies are caused by many reasons including working with multiple customers on this site or clients in our office at the same time.

If you upload it we can review it and answer any questions you have about it.

Thank you for your reply.

Did you see my response I typed above?

Please let me know because this has been a technical issue with the site and customers not seeming to see what experts are telling them or making unresponsive replies to the expert.

Yes, I asked you to upload the contract and your questions for us about the contract.

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.
