A lawyer is a professional who is qualified to offer law advice or represent someone in legal matters. Their roles vary across different legal jurisdictions. We have property lawyers whose role is to oversee legal matters related to real estate properties, such as buying, selling, leasing, or renting property. They also help clients in resolving disputes related to property ownership. Hiring a good property lawyer is crucial while engaging in real estate transactions.

Below are some of the things to consider when choosing a good real estate property lawyer:

Registration

When choosing a lawyer, be keen to confirm if they are registered by the Law Society of Kenya since this is a testament to their legitimacy. You can do this by searching their official names on the Law Society of Kenya website. Additionally, confirm that the lawyer has not been implicated in any malpractice cases or has not had complaints from the Advocates Complaints Commission as a result of unethical activity, since these might be red flags.

Experience

Consider getting a property lawyer who specializes in real estate law and has vast experience in the field. Look at the records of their past cases, the clients they have handled and the outcomes of those cases. Further, check their Linked In and company websites to get insight on who they are, and how long they have been dealing with real estate cases. This will help in ensuring that you are choosing someone with vast knowledge of what happens in the real estate industry and has experience in the services they are offering.

Knowledge of land laws and policies

In Kenya, we have laws and acts which regulate land ownership and other land-related issues. It is advisable to choose a lawyer who understands all these laws and policies and how they will affect you in future. This will also help you in making judgements that comply with local laws and standards.

Honesty and transparency

Honesty and communication create a good relationship between the client and the lawyer. A lawyer should provide you with all the information concerning your property and explain to you any matters that might be relevant to you. They should be clear about all the legal processes and provide you with extensive updates and should be willing to discuss everything with you and you should feel free to ask questions.

It is important that you select a reputable and honourable property lawyer. This guarantees that you resolve your real estate problems sensibly and cautiously. Always seek advice from real estate professionals who can guide you to a good and reputable lawyer.
