Orlando Title Search and Title Defect Disputes
Hiring an attorney for your real estate transaction can make an enormous difference, both in terms of minimizing complications and expediting the process, and to give yourself the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have an experienced professional looking out for your best interests. For example, the lender will not issue a loan unless the buyer has obtained title insurance. This type of insurance exists to verify that the seller is the owner of the property, and that no one else has any type of lien, claim or other encumbrance on the title. Obtaining title insurance depends on conducting an exhaustive investigation known as a title search, looking for any and all evidence of title encumbrances, and it requires an extensive knowledge of the various types of issues that may cause defects in the title.
A real estate attorney can issue
title insurance, but this is not the only service available in relation to the subject of title. Another issue has to do with what happens when title defects are discovered. In the event that the title search reveals a defect, the buyer has a right to demand that the seller take action to remove the defect, or to cancel the transaction and recover any funds deposited. In such a situation, either side can be represented by a lawyer, who can negotiate for a resolution and even take the case to court if necessary.
Real Estate Closings
Our office provides closing services for purchases, refinances and sales for business owners and individuals. We work with realtors, mortgage brokers and lenders and handle residential and commercial closings. We also provide closing services for purchases and sales of businesses, with or without real estate assets.
