I guess this can probably go in this forum since it relates to refining my contracts.
I just got off the phone with a real estate attorney here in the city I live in. WOW, just WOW is all I can say. I did not realize how big and bloated some attorneys heads can be. After we talked a few minutes about what I was trying to do I asked that forbidden question, under the idea that it does not hurt to ask, of can he help me refine my contracts until I can get my first deal done and then I can pay him.
Boy, after that, Mr. semi-nice attorney turned into the devil incarnate! I won't be asking that question again, of an attorney anyway.
