A closing attorney can help with the title examination on the home you
wish to buy. When the title order comes in from the lender, a closing
attorney will order a municipal lien certificate, which verifies the real
estate taxes and other charges on the property. Our Buffalo real estate
closings attorney will review the title to verify there are no title defects.
Your real estate closings attorney can ensure your property is clear of:
- Claims of others
- Outstanding deeds of trusts
- Unpaid taxes
- Defective deeds or other defects
When you purchase a home, every detail of the sale must be memorialized
in a contract for it be legally binding. If the seller promised they would
fix or repair something with the house before you purchase, you would
want to make sure the contract outlines what they agreed to do. An attorney
can also review the contract to make sure it adheres to all New York regulations.
At closing, our
Buffalo closing attorney will process loan funding and review the title to verify there are no
changes. The attorney will also ensure all mortgages are paid off and
liens are discharged. The lender will also send instructions to your attorney
listing any further details that need to be taken care of before the sale
can close. When all the paperwork is gathered, your closing attorney will
review all paperwork and contracts with you before you sign.
