Attorneys / Lawyers / Those with Legal Questions

Welcome to the Attorney and Lawyers Hangout

As a lawyer specialising in commercial contracts, I wanted to share some of my own experience and knowledge with fellow forum members: a basic understanding of contracts can go far and save yourself a lot of money down the track.

Feel free to add in your own experience or questions.

Non-lawyers are also welcome to join!

We already have at least one thread on general legal questions and answers. The thread I'm referring to was started by a guy called Lurker who had really good legal and surfing knowledge, but unfortunately was banned from here.

RE: Attorneys / Lawyers / Those with Legal Questions
1. When hiring a lawyer to buy real estate in the US. Can the lawyer do everything and act as a proxy. By signing him a POA. Can he:

- Obtain the tax numbers and other documents required to buy a house;
- Open a bank account,
- Ask for a loan;
- Open a company if necessary;
- Pay the transaction taxes, notary, etc.
- Sign the deed on the principal behalf.
- Hire a rental management company.
- Hire an accountant and pay him.

And separately

- If the principal wants to apply for a investment visa. What would be the costs.

I know it´s a lot of risk giving all this powers to a lawyer. But still. And what are the standard legal fees for all this. Do you calculate as a percentage of the house.

2. Secondly about the cancellation of the Roosh meeting by the government. Does he have grounds to sue the government. And if so would a lawyer work based in quota litis.

Threads should definitely merge. If there´s a dupe there should be some kind of system which would make the post and new thread immediately merge into the previous thread. With a note saying something like (post merged).
