The closing of a real estate transaction usually involves complicated legal documents which confer obligations that many people do not understand until it's too late. For instance, it is required for a married person's spouse to sign a mortgage on real property that is homestead property. However, that spouse does not have to sign the promissory note which obligates them to repay the loan unless required to do so by the mortgage. We regularly counsel clients who have signed real estate documents years later and they had no idea what they signed.
Before you sign a legal document that could have serious impact on your rights to property or your financial obligations, consult with an attorney who knows how your specific circumstances will be impacted by your signature.
