What does a real estate attorney do?
Your guide to the role of an attorney in a Connecticut Real Estate closing.
Throughout this process, your attorney will work closely you and your real estate agent to keep you informed and work with you.
Four Things A Real Estate Attorney Does For You When Buying A Home:
It starts with the contract. Make sure your Real Estate agent attaches an attorney approval rider to your purchase and sale agreement. Once the contract has been signed, have your agent send it to us. We review the contract with you within 24 hours.
We make sure the seller has good title to the home you are buying. We do a title search to see if there are any liens or defects on the property. If there are, we force the seller to fix them.
We represent you at the closing. This means we prepare closing documents, cut checks, and represent you at the closing table. We explain all of documents to you.
At closing we issue a title policy. A title policy protects what’s likely your largest investment.
