What has to happen for a MA real estate attorney to handle cases in Pennsylvania?

1 Answers. Asked on Mar 01st, 2017 on Real Estate - Pennsylvania
More details to this question:
We currently live in MA, but are moving to PA, where we are going to be buying several properties. Is it possible for a real estate attorney, living and practicing in MA, to get licensed, or pay a fee, or something so that she can stay here in MA but handle our legal needs in PA?

Yes an attorney licensed in one state can obtain a license to practice law in a state where he or she does not reside. You can contact the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board for details:


I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.

Real Estate
Real estate attorneys can help individuals, families and small business with all property-related legal issues. Buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate should work with an attorney to negotiate the terms of agreement; draft and review the contract; review related paperwork (such as loan agreements); clear existing liens on a property; and attend the closing. Lawyers can also assist property owners with addressing zoning/rezoning issues and appealing property tax assessment. Landlords and tenants should work with real estate law firms to draft and review lease agreement, handle eviction proceedings and resolve landlord-tenant disputes.
