Power Team Question Series # 4: Attorneys

Power Team Question Series # 4: Attorneys

As you build your Power Team you may want to have several questions that you ask each potential member. There is not an exact script to interview your Real Estate Attorney, but here are several questions you can consider asking your Attorney:

1. How long have you practiced real estate law within the state?

2. How many real estate cases do you normally handle per year?

3. Can you briefly tell me about some recent real estate issues you handled?

4. Do you charge a flat fee for reviewing or preparing real estate purchase agreements? If so, what is that fee?

5. For other real estate needs what is your bill structure?

6. Who else in your office would I work with real estate issues and what is there hourly bill rate?

7. Do you provide free consultations for different scopes of work with real estate?

8. Do you provide itemized billing statements?

9. Do you assist landlords with evicting tenants? If so, what is the average time it takes to evict a tenant and the average cost? Is it a flat fee?

10. Do you pursue garnishments for any issued landlord judgments against tenants?

11. Do you have expertise in reviewing contractor agreements and contracts? If so please provide an example?

12. Do you specialize in real estate law?

13. What other areas of law do you specialize in?

14. Have you assisted other investors with short sales or foreclosures?

15. Can you provide me with a list of references? (Remember: Trust but Verify! Also a great way to find other investors in the area)

16. Can I get an email and secondary number (either cell phone number or office phone) to contact you with further questions?

Remember every day you need to say and repeat...THIS IS MY BUSINESS! Keep working on ways to make your business better each and every day.

Carpe Diem! Smiling - Stacey

Each day do one thing to get you closer to your dreams because if you do today what others are not willing to do, then tomorrow you can do those things that others are only dreaming about doing!

Believe and Achieve! Smiling - Joe
