Our Real Estate and Closing Legal Services

A real estate attorney typically provides legal counsel and advice in preparation for–and during–the closing process. Our real estate and closing legal services include:

Drafting and reviewing purchase and sale agreements. Entering a purchase and sale agreement is a big deal and, before you do so, you want to make sure that the agreement is fair and protective of your interests. What’s more, it’s vital that once the agreement has been drafted and signed by both parties, you understand your obligations and rights under the contract.

Navigating title and title insurance issues. If there are any title defects, the closing process could be delayed. An experienced real estate attorney will know how to conduct a thorough investigation into a home’s title and what to do if any defects surface. An attorney can also advise you in regard to title insurance and whether or not it’s something that you should buy.

Understanding closing documents and paperwork.
At the closing table, you’ll face a heap of paperwork. Some of this paperwork and documentation can be confusing or overwhelming, including TILA-RESPA integrated disclosures, which are designed to ensure that you understand the terms of your mortgage loan and your duty to repay it.

Real estate disputes. In addition to the above services, our real estate law firms can also provide representation in the event of real estate disputes. While types of disputes that we work on may pertain to real estate issues outside of the home-buying process–such as boundary disputes–we also provide representation for clients when disagreement or legal issues arise when buying or selling a home. For example, if you are the buyer and the seller breaches your purchase and sale agreement, you may have the right to legal recourse.
