FAQs About Real Estate Law

What steps do you take in a title search, and how do you handle discovered defects?

During a title search, our team meticulously examines public records to identify any legal claims against the property such as liens, easements, or encroachments. If we discover any defects, we take immediate steps to address these issues.

This could involve negotiating with previous owners, working with local authorities, or arranging for the removal of liens. Our goal is to ensure that the title is clear and transferable, protecting you from any future legal disputes.

How do you ensure a real estate contract is advantageous to me?

Our approach to ensuring that real estate contracts are advantageous for you involves a thorough review and strategic negotiation.

We scrutinize each contract clause to identify potential risks and ensure the terms protect your interests.

By assessing the implications of contract terms and negotiating modifications where necessary, we aim to secure the most favorable outcome for you, minimizing potential liabilities and maximizing benefits.

Can you describe your role and the steps involved during the closing process of a real estate transaction?

In the closing process, our role is to ensure all legal and financial obligations are met and that the transaction concludes smoothly.

We review and prepare all necessary documents, such as the bill of sale, deed, and financing agreements, ensuring they are accurate and complete.

We also coordinate with all parties involved, including the buyer, seller, and financial institutions, to manage the exchange of documents and funds.

Finally, we handle the final settlement and recording of the transaction to officially transfer ownership.

How do you handle disputes that arise during real estate transactions?

When disputes arise, we first attempt to resolve them through direct negotiation, aiming for a solution that satisfies all parties while protecting our client’s interests.

If negotiation does not resolve the issue, we may proceed to mediation or, if necessary, litigation.

Our team is skilled in all aspects of dispute resolution and is prepared to vigorously represent you in court to achieve a favorable resolution.

Our risk management strategies involve conducting comprehensive due diligence to identify any potential risks early in the transaction process.
