BUYING, SELLING OR REFINANCING?
Title Insurance with Attorney Protection
You may think that hiring a real estate attorney to handle your closing, including your title search, lien search and title insurance will be expensive, but that is not the case. In most cases our fees are comparable to what you would pay a title company. However, a title company cannot interpret legal documents or provide legal advice because they are not run by attorneys. When you choose Costa & Associates, in addition to your title insurance, you also get the added security of having an experienced real estate attorney by your side for every stage of your contract and closing, eliminating the guesswork at every step of your journey.
Having Costa & Associates by your side is crucial because legal documents are what the closing is all about. What it says in your real estate contract can have profound effects on you for years to come. It doesn’t matter what someone said. It doesn’t matter what you thought. All that matters are the details that are specified in the contract. We scrutinize every section of your contract, ensuring that the language is written in your favor to include possible contingencies, both now and in the future. Our goal is to make sure that before your pen touches paper or your signature is affixed to a legal document, you are comfortable with what you are signing and have a strong and clear understanding of what you are agreeing to.
If you forgo having an attorney by your side, you may not be as protected as you think, even on matters of title. Title companies have very little at stake. If they have liability issues, the company can simply be dissolved and reformed as a new entity. Attorneys are held to a much stricter standard by their professional ethics and the Florida Bar Association. You can rest assured that when you choose Costa & Associates, your assets will be protected, and so will your wallet.
