Transactions & Litigation

Before the days of real estate agents, Attorneys handled most real estate transactions. Today, some states still require a lawyer to be involved in the closing of a real estate transaction. South Dakota does not, however, an Attorney may still represent you in your real estate transaction. In fact, many agriculture and commercial property transactions involve an Attorney to one degree or another. Attorneys have largely left the residential real estate business, but may assist clients upon request. Many Attorneys whose practice involves real estate will act as an agent for the Buyer, Seller, or as a transactional agent. A transactional agent might act to facilitate a transaction and will typically hold escrow money or draft documents, but does not represent either party. A transactional agent will not advocate for one side against the other, but will put into writing a deal already struck by the parties. A transactional agent might be ideal for a "For Sale By Owner" situation, where a buyer has already been found, but the parties still need some expert assistance.
