This is the first post in a series of articles which will discuss selecting and retaining a real estate attorney in Hartford, Connecticut. We feel it is necessary to address this topic as the buying and selling of real estate is a highly complicated matter. Also, for many individuals this is the largest purchase they will ever make in their lifetime. Failing to properly handle a real estate transaction can result in an agreement being delayed, or worse, falling through. By ensuring that the transaction is handled correctly you help to ensure that you close on your property sooner, rather than later. The goal of our coming articles is to provide information which will help people understand our state’s real estate process. It is also our goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of counsel. If you are in need of assistance, contact our office today to speak with a Hartford real estate lawyer.
We will be addressing several topics over our coming articles. Some of the issues which we will look at include:
- Preparing real estate purchase or sale agreements
- Performing a title search and the purchase of title insurance
- Dealing with closing adjustments or any other pre-closing issues
- Properly completing and executing all mortgage documents
- Finalizing the real estate closing
There are several reasons why we have chosen to address these topics. First if an agreement is not properly drafted, then either the buyer or the seller may be without protections that are needed in the event of a dispute. Second, a proper title search is necessary in order to ensure that a buyer obtains a “clean” title and that the seller is able to properly sell the property. Third, issues which arise after a home inspection can create the need to resolve several matters before closing. Fourth, if all mortgage documents, including the application, are not properly completed, then it may result in the release of funds being delayed, if not refused. Finally, ensuring the proper handling of the closing will allow the parties to know that future issues in regards to the title of the property, will not arise.
