Should I have my real estate sale agreement reviewed by an attorney before signing?

The Pennsylvania Association of Realtors (“PAR”) Standard Agreement for the Sale of Real Estate, utilized by most realtors in Pennsylvania, is generally a good form of agreement. That said, there are many choices to be made in completing the form, the impact of which may not be readily apparent to the typical residential seller or buyer. Most realtors are very helpful in completing the PAR Agreement, but they are not lawyers and cannot give legal advice. So, it is never a bad idea to have your attorney review the Agreement before you sign it, especially if there are any unique circumstances, special contingencies or other provisions to be added that are not covered by the form document.
