Residential Real Estate and Title Services
Buyers and sellers of residential real estate often find many benefits to using lawyers for closings, rather than real estate brokers or title agents. Having an attorney in the room when making an investment of time and money in a home protects one of the largest investments you will probably ever make. Attorneys are there solely to represent your interests and your interests alone during the transaction. Attorneys can help you avoid disputes during the contract negotiation, and can ensure that the warranties, title insurance and other commitments you receive from the seller, agents and surveyors are enforceable.

Our real estate attorneys represent home buyers, sellers, and developers, so we are able to anticipate and avoid common problems for our clients. The most important thing in any real estate transaction is owning clear title to the property you are buying. While it happens rarely, occasionally problems in the title to a piece of property are discovered. Without a thorough title search, you can inherit problems of the previous owner. We provide title insurance and related services, including a thorough title search and a comprehensive review of the title data, all performed by an attorney with the experience and knowledge to identify and resolve title issues. An assurance of clear title is included in our representation.
It is our job to make real estate transactions as simple and understandable as possible for our clients. Our attorneys remain accessible to you at all stages of your real estate closing to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have. We understand that for buyers and sellers, their real estate closing may be the largest financial transaction of their lives, and we treat every closing accordingly.
