Use of Real Estate & Property Data for Legal Professionals

Legal professionals get involved in real estate deals for all kinds of reasons – contract disputes, divorces, deaths, easement issues …. Even a seemingly simple house sale and closure might turn into bitter fight over who has the right to do what with a property.

When attorneys or other legal professionals do need to get involved, they need the most accurate and up-to-date information at their fingertips. And ATTOM Data Solutions is where they find it.

Real Estate Data for Legal Professionals

Wherever there’s a legal dispute over property, attorneys know what they’re up against – estates that end up in probate for lack of planning; claims over boundary lines; acrimony over ownership of a property that former partners both now claim ownership to.

And of course, as a legal professional called in to settle the dispute, you don’t know the specifics until you get your hands on the right data.
