Before ownership of real property can be formally transferred at closing, there are numerous important details that must be worked out. For one thing, there cannot be clouds on the title, such as unresolved mechanic’s liens.
Unless the buyer is very wealthy and is paying cash, there must also be a sound financing structure in place. This includes working out arrangements for paying not only the mortgage, but also property taxes, insurance, escrow fees, brokers’ commissions and other closing costs.
The higher the value of the property, the more complicated these arrangements tend to be. Our firm has the knowledge you need to protect your rights and move forward with confidence on your transaction.
