Windsor, WI asked in Real Estate Law for Wisconsin

Q: Is there someone in Baraboo that could review purchase documents for a house we are closing on 05/15? I am wondering if

we should have an attorney go over the paperwork and possibly accompany us to our closing? This is the first home we are buying and we do have a realtor, we are just not sure how all of this work.

A: Justia has an attorney listing service. I would do a search for attorneys in the Baraboo area who practice real estate law and contact some of them to see if they could review your documents before the closing. There are also other attorney listing services you could use to locate attorneys in the Baraboo area. It is a good idea to make sure you understand all of the paperwork you are signing before you proceed to the closing, since a home purchase is often one of the biggest contracts any individual enters into during their life.
