Skilled Attorney For Researching Property Value And Title Issues Before Closing
In Rhode Island, the buyer has the right to choose a title attorney, though the seller will often have an attorney present. We can represent the buyer or the seller in these transactions. When clients choose our firm, they can expect our dedicated assistance with any of the following:
- Transaction contracts: The provisions of a home sale are detailed in a contract signed by both the seller and buyer. The contract outlines each party’s legal responsibilities, as well as ways in which the transaction agreement can be invalidated. It is wise to have an attorney review the contract before you sign it.
- Disclosures: Sellers must disclose any flaws or issues with the property so that the buyers have a full understanding of the condition of the home they are obtaining for the agreed-upon price. We meticulously review these disclosure forms, looking out for anything alarming or troubling.
- Initial inspections: The initial inspection is a crucial part of the closing process, as it informs buyers and sellers alike of the true state of the property. An inspection report can help buyers determine if they will need to put extra money into repairing or maintaining the property.
- Title searches: A title search reveals if there are any previous claims on the home title, such as liens for unpaid property taxes or home repair bills. A seller may not know about issues with their home title, so the title search is essential to give buyers a clear understanding of what they’re getting into.
We can address your concerns about the mortgage process as well. The many steps it takes to secure financing for your home purchase can be frustrating. If you need more time than the financing deadline that was agreed to in your contract, we can help you request an extension from the seller.
