Title Examinations

The purchase of a house or development lot is one of the most exciting and important decisions in a person's life. As such, the significance of securing an examination of title to the property in question cannot be understated. A title examination provides assurance to all parties that the seller has good and marketable title, free of any encumbrances or title defects. Our attorneys understand the importance of performing quick and accurate title examinations in order to expedite the closing process. With that said, please call our attorneys prior to purchasing real estate, so they can accurately advise you of any potential title defects that may be in existence.

Purchase and Sale Agreements
The risk of financial loss is significant for buyers and sellers involved in a real estate transaction. A poorly drafted purchase and sale agreement can only increase this risk. One of the best ways to guard against the associated risks is a properly drafted purchase and sale agreement. In fact, if the buyer is financing the purchase, his or her bank will likely require a purchase and sale agreement prior to starting the loan process. Shortcuts like using a boilerplate contract found online can be dangerous, as these contracts typically are not state or transaction specific, and do not sufficiently summarize the basic understanding between the parties. As such, if you are looking to buy or sell real estate, please contact our attorneys first before entering into any agreement related to the transaction.
