The Legal Side of Buying & Selling Property
In some states, a buyer is not required to obtain legal representation during a property purchase. In Connecticut, a real estate attorney is required to verify that the title to the property in question is valid, that there are no outstanding liens on the property, and that everything is in line to proceed with the closing.
In addition to these services, we offer further assistance during your transaction. We will prepare and register the required legal documents; review the mortgage terms, including fees and rates; issue title insurance to protect against any unforeseen issues with the title; review the entire sales agreement; and attend the closing to ensure the buyer’s rights are protected throughout.
