Protecting Residential Property Sellers

Protecting the rights of sellers, realtors and brokers, we can help you facilitate the selling of a home. Starting from the beginning, we can advise you on price, accounting for appliances, fixtures and other important property features. We will also help you work out the timing of the closing, which is especially important if you plan on buying a new place. If any disclosure or title problems develop, we can help you reach a timely resolution.

Protecting Residential Property Buyers

For buyers, the main work comes in the 60-day period after the purchase contract is signed. From inspections to financing, you need information about what the process will cost and when it will happen. We will review the disclosure statement and look for any title problems that the seller needs to clean up. However, it is important to understand that title issues are usually resolved at the buyer's expense.

We will also help you obtain title insurance, which will protect you to the extent of your mortgage balance or the complete value of your property. It will probably take two weeks for the inspection of any property condition issues, followed by a month for mortgage considerations. There for you throughout the process, our attorneys can help you avoid the uncertainty and anxiety that can come up between the purchase agreement and the closing.
