This post is being written to conclude and recap our series on the handling of Hartford, Connecticut real estate transactions. We felt it was necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that, for most, real estate is the largest investment of one’s lifetime. Many, however, do not know what to expect from the process. This can result in errors during a transaction which cause problems for both the buyers and the sellers. This is why we wrote this series, with the goal of providing information which will help people know what it is they should expect from the process. It has also been our goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of an attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance, then contact our office today to speak with a lawyer.
We have addressed several topics over our recent articles. Issues which we have addressed include:
- Contracts to purchase or sell real estate
- Handling a title search and purchasing title insurance
- Closing adjustments in a real estate transaction
- Completing all mortgage documents
- Finalizing a real estate closing
There are multiple reasons why we chose to address these topics. First, if a contract is not prepared properly then a party may not be bound to concessions they have made. This can result in an adverse result for one, if not both, parties and may jeopardize the transaction. Second, if a seller does not produce a “clean” title then litigation is likely to ensue after the transaction is completed. Third, many real estate transactions require adjustments to be made due to issues which arise during inspections. Negotiating these adjustments is crucial to ensuring that a deal remains on track. Fourth, if mortgage documents are not completed correctly then a deal may not close on time. Finally, if a closing is not handled properly then parties may not be paid on time and lawsuits may be filed as a result.
One point we stressed in each of these articles is that it is important to retain an attorney with real estate experience for the handling of your matter.
