Where do I get information about finding a real estate attorney?
To find a real estate attorney, contact your local bar association, which may offer local referral services. You may also ask friends or your real estate agent for their recommendations. When you have several names, call each to find out about fees and their level of experience.
Where do I get information about being a landlord?
If you are a landlord and have questions, contact:
* National Multi-Housing Council, 1850 M Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20036; call (202) 659-3381.
* National Apartment Association, 21 N. Union St., Suite 200, Alexandria, VA 22314; (703) 518-6141.
Where do I get information on lease options?
Contact your real estate agent (some even specialize in such transactions) or read up on lease options at the public library. If you have a real estate attorney, ask if he or she has any prepared information you can review. Most bookstores have a fairly hefty real estate book section these days. Many current real estate books have at least a section on lease options. If you are considering a lease option, be sure you do your homework first. And have an attorney or financial advisor on hand to review any paperwork before you sign.
