Ensure a Smooth Transaction When Buying or Selling a Home

While brokers can assist with most parts of a real estate transaction, there are situations where you may need advice from an experienced real estate lawyer to get the deal done. This includes working out a fair deal when hiring a broker in the first place.

Some states require a real estate lawyer to be at the closing. Sometimes there are problems found during the inspection that are not easily resolved. Also, it’s common for problems to pop up with appraisals, liens or other issues that can bring a transaction to a screeching halt. Tight timelines and the large amount of money involved can turn small hiccups into stressful situations.

LegalShield personal legal plans allow you to get advice about any aspect of your transaction to help keep things moving to and through closing. If you are the buyer, your provider lawyer can even draft your loan documents for no additional fee. Keep your transaction friction free by having access to a real estate provider lawyer in your back pocket.

Get Legal Advise and Document Review for Home Improvement Contracts

If you’re about to hire a home improvement contractor, you may have questions about their license, whether you need to pull building permits or whether their contract is fair and protects your interests. Since the home contracting industry has a relatively high rate of complaints, it’s a good idea to have a provider lawyer involved to prevent problems down the road.

Refinancing, dealing with HOAs and building codes are other common areas of concern for many LegalShield members. LegalShield plans allow you to send your lawyer any documents (up to 15 pages each) for review and feedback. Don’t go it alone. Our provider lawyers are here to help you protect your rights and the value of your investment.

Have a Provider Lawyer Help You Settle Real Estate Disputes

If you’re having a dispute with a neighbor, a contractor, a bank or any other individual or organization related to your property, you probably just want it to end as soon as possible. You have 3 options.

  1. Get legal advice from a provider lawyer.
  2. Have a provider lawyer write letters or make calls on your behalf.
  3. If the matter still isn't resolved, initiate a lawsuit.

A personal legal plan provides benefits for all 3 options. Assistance as a plaintiff in a lawsuit is covered under the preferred member discount.

A personal legal plan comes with unlimited consultation with your lawyer on an unlimited number of legal matters, letters and calls on your behalf to settle disputes and 25% off hourly rates as a plaintiff in a civil matter. If you are a named defendant in a covered civil suit, your plan includes trial defense time for no additional cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long after I join can I use the plan?

You can use your plan as soon as your membership application is reviewed and your account is set up. The review process takes 12-24 hours (or less) from the moment you purchase your plan (on regular business days). Once accepted, you can be in contact with a lawyer in 4 hours or less and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.

How much can I save with a membership?

The average lawyer in the U.S. charges between $150-$400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1,000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring a lawyer directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having a lawyer on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the lawyers in our network often help our members recover thousands of dollars of damages or avoid thousands of dollars in fees over what they would have experienced had they tried to resolve the legal issue themselves. Obviously every member and usage situation is different, but when used correctly, your membership can easily save significant amounts of money. Not to mention savings from our member perks.

Who is covered under a personal plan?

Our Personal Plan is really a family plan. You, your spouse or partner and your dependents living at home are covered under one membership.
