As I have been harping about it for quite sometimes to anyone I meet and to all the media I can get my hands on such as Twitter (twitter.com/kruel74) and Facebook (My profile), I am currently writing a book entitled 40 Questions You Should Ask Your Lawyers When Buying a Property In Malaysia. The book is written from a layman point of view and I am trying to explain how one should approached one's lawyer when buying a property. These are the inside information but whether you know it or not, most lawyers will know it and they usually selectively share these trade secrets.
This is not a tell-all book but it is to help one to use lawyers properly and understand them on how intricate is the law business is. Some say being a lawyer is easy as all you need is the gift of the gab. That is just one component of a business which is wrought with so many labels that people throws at. I did try to explain in the book that our profession is a sunset business. It will be smaller and smaller as people and government gets smarter and technology becomes easier to use. Why pay a lawyer when you can do everything yourself?
However, before that day comes, lawyers will always be a component which is to be the ultimate middle man between you and all those red tape which are always there. And I will start with explaining how to buy a house first, then maybe I'll go down less trodden roads like civil disputes and criminal offenses.
Here is the rough draft of my book cover which might change later as the designer is still at it. I actually love it and it managed to capture all that I want it to be... (but this cover still has grammatical error and not the final one)
