Role of Buyer's Closing Attorney

  • REVIEWING THE PURCHASE AND SALE AGREEMENT: The role of a buyer's attorney is to review the purchase and sale agreement governing the terms of the real estate transaction. 
  • TITLE SEARCH: After a contract is executed between the buyer and seller, we will order title work for the property. We will review the title search for for any problems in the property‚Äôs title, such as judgments, easements, or encroachments, and work to resolve issues discovered. 
  • OBTAINING TITLE INSURANCE: Title insurance is an insurance policy that protects both the buyer and lender from any costs which may accumulate if you were to have to defend the title to the property. We can assist you in obtaining a title insurance policy for your home. 
  • WORKING WITH LENDERS: If you are taking out a loan to purchase your property, your lender will require a large amount of paperwork in order to approve the mortgage financing. We will work with our     
    client's lender to provide your lender with their required documents needed to extend the loan. 
  • DISBURSING FUNDS: After closing, we will disburse funds, including funds for paying sellers, commissions to real estate agents, and paying taxes for your property.
