Clarity to a Complex Process
A closing attorney performs a handful of crucial tasks in the settlement of a real estate transaction. They are responsible for researching the title to the property to ensure there are no issues or errors that could affect the closing or your rights to the property in the future! Should an issue arise it is up to them to research and resolve the problem quickly.
The attorney also reviews all the contracts related to the transaction for accuracy. This includes all financial information related to the transaction, such as tax and fee amounts, agent commissions, and seller payment. They gather the closing documents for signing and collect the required money for closing.
Picking the right closing attorney ensures that the above tasks are not only completed but are completed efficiently. Everyone promises customer service and speed but we have been in the business long enough to know that actions speak louder than words.
We have put together a list of our top three closing agents who are not only professional, knowledgable, and efficient but also offer incredible customer service that brings a level of peace to the complexities associated with buying a home.
