The attorney review period is the period of time allowed to you by the law to review the contract of sale for a property with your attorney. During this time period you may terminate the contract with or without any reason and you would not have any obligation to the other party. The attorney review period begins when the signed contract is available to both parties. It lasts three days, unless the property is a new construction, then it is extended to seven days. The attorney review period can end before the allotted time or be extended based on when both parties agree to the final form of the contract and any riders or addendums made.
