I do not have any legal contacts in NJ and wonder if it's even necessary to have an attorney included in the purchase transaction. Let me know. Thanks.
Are you RENTING an apartment or PURCHASING a condo?
This should not be considered legal advice and is intended for educational purposes only. It does not constitute a contract for legal services between any parties. Answers are given to questions for which there may be additional facts not mentioned which might change the legal issues or consequences.
It is strongly recommended that you retain an attorney to represent you in the purchase of a condo. In NJ, particularly in North Jersey, using an attorney in real estate transactions is standard operating procedure.

I do not know if you mean an apt. in a co-op or a condo, or the entire building. Whatever the case may be, yes, you shoulld have an attorney too represent you. There is a saying-he who represents himself has a fool for a client. There are many legal, environmental and financial issues, which you are not trained to understand and determine, and a title company cannot give you legal advice.
The foregoing is not intended to be legal advice upon which you may rely as I have not been retained for this purpose.
