Q: 

How do I find a good attorney? What questions should I ask, and what should I look for? Are big firms better?

A:  Finding an attorney is easy. Finding the right attorney is hard. There are at least a half-dozen Web site directories that allow consumers to search for lawyers in their area by specialty. The Web sites are a great idea in theory, but a consumer still needs to do their own homework. Why? Not all consumers know exactly what legal issues are involved in their case, and most of the information provided in an attorney's profile was self-generated. In my experience in viewing the profiles and consumer ratings of attorneys I know, the ratings are wildly inaccurate because the sample size of user-reported ratings is tiny. Also, one frustrated consumer who did not...

Q: 

what questions should i ask about renting to own my first home?

A:  The reason the state law discourages contracts that don''t close within 6 months is that the "buyer" risks having the seller default on an obligation and the property involuntarily changes hands to the seller''s creditor. Huh? The seller fails to pay his mortgage, for example, and his bank forecloses while the renter is expecting to get title to the house later. Instead, the renter gets a notice for the bank to move out. Because this identical problem happened to a lot of people due the same guy defaulting on a lot of properties all at once, the state legislation addressed the problem by forcing sellers to make disclosures on a regular basis or else be subject to penalties, such as losing all monies received from the renter. This makes sellers skittish...
