When you are purchasing a home, you are making one of the biggest financial decisions of your life. For most people, this means a 30-year financial commitment; signing any document that will have that serious an impact on your life without a legal review is never a good idea. What may seem like a standard purchase and sale agreement could have ambiguous clauses that could cost you good faith money, or could result in your waiving certain rights.
Business owners often lease property rather than purchasing; generally, a lease agreement is a long-term arrangement with the property owner, and the business owner. However, if you fail to have a lease reviewed before you sign the final document, you could be forfeiting certain rights granted to you under Nebraska law.
