Real estate title work: Do you know what you’re doing?

On Behalf of | May 5, 2017 | Real Estate Closings |

When buying any piece of real estate, from a home to commercial property, there are many steps you need to take. Along with this, it’s important that you do whatever you can to avoid a situation that leads to trouble on the day of closing.

One of the areas that deserves a lot of attention is the title of the property. This may not sound like a big deal, but any mistakes regarding this detail could cause you a lot of trouble down the road.

Here are some of the things to consider:

— Title insurance. You must make sure that everything is coordinated in regards to the issuance of title insurance to the lender and the person purchasing the property.

Title examination. In short, it’s important that the title be reviewed to ensure that there are no defects. If something comes up, both parties must work together to get to the bottom of the problem.

— Closing. Although you assume everything is in order, you never know what could go wrong at the closing table. This is why you should be prepared with all the necessary documents and assistance.
