Real Estate Law
The purchase or sale of a home is one of the most important decisions of your life.
If you are buying or selling a home, or commercial property having a real estate attorney can be just as important as having a Realtor. Why close with a title company that can only do title insurance? If a legal problem arises they can’t handle it. Instead, close with a company that can address and solve any problem that may arise. If you are buy or selling a home it is essential that you have an attorney represent you.
Title problems can often complicate the sale of your property. A Real Estate Attorney can help identify these problems early and resolve them so that the closing happens on time. In most counties in Florida, the seller also pays for the title insurance on the property.
Even though most counties in Florida traditionally have the seller pay for title insurance, a buyer should recognize the importance of having the representation of an experienced Real Estate Attorney. In addition to reviewing proposed contracts, the buyer’s Real Estate Attorney will assure that the closing documents are executed properly and can attend the closing to advise the buyer as to their rights and obligations under the contract.
One of the marked advantages of title insurance is that prior to a policy being issued, the title insurance company completes extensive research into relevant public records, maps and documents to trace ownership of the property and determine if anyone other than you has an interest in the property. Through its research, the title insurance company can usually identify any title problems that may arise and have these problems cleared-up prior to closing.
To finalize the sale of the home a neutral, third party (the escrow holder, a.k.a. escrow agent, title agent) is engaged to assure the transaction will close properly and on time. The escrow holder insures that all terms and conditions of the seller’s and buyer’s agreement are met prior to the sale being finalized, including receiving funds and documents, completing required forms, and obtaining the release documents for any loans or liens that have been paid off with the transaction, assuring you clear title to your property before the purchase price is fully paid.
