The closing is the final stage of a real estate transaction and perhaps the most important event in the process. It is imperative that you have a real estate attorney for matters involving real estate. Whether you are a purchaser or seller, it is never a good idea to navigate the closing process on your own. Let Baker & Summy, PC guide you through the process and steer you in the direction of a successful closing.
The process typically begins when a buyer makes an offer to purchase a seller’s property. If accepted, a closing date is agreed upon and the journey to closing begins. The closing process ends with the buyer receiving the seller’s ownership rights to the property, commonly referred to as the property’s “title”. The closing is the culmination of the process in which all parties complete the performance of the purchase and sale agreement or contract. In Georgia, attorneys are charged with the duty of conveying title and issuing title insurance policies and thus should be the centerpiece of any transaction involving the transfer of real estate. Real estate is highly specialized and an area of law that few attorneys dare tread. You will save yourself much trouble by hiring our team of highly qualified real estate attorneys.
Why You Should Hire an Attorney for your Georgia Real Estate Needs
Nothing equals the joy of buying your very own home. You hope that everything goes over smoothly and that the home of your dreams is perfect. Unfortunately, the closing process can be lengthy and unexpected issues can arise that cause would-be homebuyers to walk away. However, a skilled real estate attorney will keep you informed of your options and in most cases keep the process moving toward the desired conclusion.
You may start out feeling great about the property you are buying. However, as you progress towards the closing date and become more familiar with all aspects of the property, you may have increasing doubts about following through with the transaction. Knowing your legal rights and obligations regarding terminating a purchase and sale contract will help you avoid the legal entanglements that come with breaking a contract. Some of the common reasons for terminating a contract are revealed through inspections and appraisals. No one wants damaged goods. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of all aspects of a real estate transaction, including contracts, inspections, appraisals and financing.
In addition to the issues listed above, the buying process can expose many other obstacles for the homebuyer along the way. For instance, improperly completed paperwork can unwind the entire process and reset the start switch. Delays can be extremely disruptive to the homebuyer. To avoid potential delays, speak with a knowledgeable real estate attorney today.
