Here's an overview of what an attorney can provide to help you close on a residential or commercial title:

Title examination

Checking the title when you receive a real estate purchase agreement or a request from a bank or mortgage broker. At this stage we will find out about any restrictions to use, encroachments, easements, liens, or judgements to determine if the title is transferable to you. We will identify any existing mortgages against the real estate that will need to be satisfied at closing.

Title insurance

Title insurance protects you and your lender in the event a future problem found with the title. It can protect you against a number of unforeseen problems, like forged documents with no title transfer to the real estate, forged satisfactions or releases of mortgages, impersonation of the true owners of the land by fake people, or even forged mortgages entirely. We will help make your options clear and understandable, so that your title is properly protected.

Group coordinator

We serve as your expert when communicating not only to lenders and buyers, but also other groups who may need to be consulted in your title closing. This can include surveyors, merchants, real estate brokers, the mortgage holder, your insurance company, home inspectors, contractors, the county tax department, and several other groups. We make sure that everyone is on the same page, so the closing can go as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Review of documents

When you are ready to close closing, we will be there to review all the documents related to the real estate and loan closing. We'll also help explain the purpose of any documents attached to the closing, such as a deed, a deed of trust or a settlement statement.

Distribution of money

After checking everything one last time, we will check again at your local registry one last time to update the title and record your deed and/or deed of trust. We'll then send a final opinion to the title company and pay the title company its premium. After that, we distribute any and all other fees related to the transaction, which can include real estate brokerage fees, county taxes, payoff for existing loans, pest inspection fees, homeowner association dues, and more.
