Commercial Broker Services
Assisting Brokers Close Transactions
Brokers get paid when a deal closes and we know that bringing a deal to the closing table is not only about obtaining financing. Many contracts contain contingencies for land use and environmental due diligence. Loans on commercial buildings often require lease review, and operational audits. Sometimes re-zoning or re-permitting is also a closing contingency. At Fletcher & Fischer, P. L. we can assist your clients with everything from contract and loan negotiation to completion of required due diligence and audits. We also regularly process re-zonings and obtain development approvals from local governments throughout central Florida.
Fletcher & Fischer, P.L. provides title and escrow services for both commercial and residential transactions, as well as comprehensive closing services to developers, local realtors, lenders, mortgage brokers, and individuals. Through its affiliation with The Fund and Old Republic National Title Agency, our firm has the capability to handle all title insurance, title examination and closing needs.
We offer a full array of closing services for commercial projects and residential transactions, as well as SBA loans. These closing services include execution of documents, disbursement of proceeds and loan payoffs, and recording of all documents to complete the transaction.
