When you close on the purchase or sale of a home, there’s a flurry of paperwork. The buyer’s and seller’s real estate agents may both tell you that this is just a formality, but that isn’t true. In most cases, the paperwork may never be looked at again, but it becomes very important if something goes wrong. If somebody backs out of the deal, there’s a problem with the title, or there are other unexpected problems with the home, the papers you signed at closing will make all of the difference in how the problem is resolved.
We help both buyers and sellers throughout the closing process. One of our most important tasks is to help the seller order and clear any issues on the title or to help the buyer to ensure that the title is clear. We also assist in the contract negotiation process including in making any adjustments needed for that specific sale rather than just relying on the old boilerplate language from another deal that may not apply. At closing, we’ll help you make sure everything’s in order and check off the final boxes.
