Lawyers Who Make The Real Estate Process Easy

Real estate deals may seem simple and straightforward. But there are multiple parties involved, each trying to protect their vested interest: the buyer, the seller, the agent, the lender. Not to mention inspectors, title companies and other players.

As real estate lawyers, we are not trying to add to that complexity. On the contrary, our job is to make sure that the deal gets done in a timely and proper fashion.

Di Giacomo & Somers L.L.C. is your go-to law firm for residential real estate transactions. We facilitate the sale and purchase of homes in North Shore communities and throughout Cook County and Lake County.

Why You Need A Knowledgeable Real Estate Attorney

Many people are tempted to do real estate transactions on their own. Sign on the dotted line and hope for the best. That could be a costly mistake. Whether you are buying or selling, an attorney will look out for your legal and financial interests.

The role of a lawyer is to make sure that everything is in order so that you are not on the hook if the deal falls through or problems arise. We have been handling residential property transactions in northern Illinois for 40 years. We can address every aspect, including:

  • Negotiation and purchase agreement
  • Clear title and title insurance
  • Inspection reports and required disclosures
  • Financing commitments and mortgage terms
  • Closing documents

Divorcing Or Downsizing?

We regularly assist homeowners who are selling their house as a result of divorce or trading down in their “empty nest” or retirement years. Our attorneys can walk you through the unique considerations such as tax ramifications and how to split any equity from the sale.

Just as importantly, we can take care of everything if you are overwhelmed by the divorce process. We work with real estate agents on the sale price and timing, and with mortgage brokers to facilitate a smooth transition into your new house or condo.
