Experienced Attorneys Providing Escrow Services throughout Miami
Real estate escrows consist of many different tasks – each of which can drastically affect a buyer or seller’s legal rights. You will have the most protection for your legal rights throughout the escrow process by hiring a real estate attorney to perform escrow services. Learn more about how a real estate lawyer can protect both buyer and seller throughout the escrow process.
A title search will be required any time a lender is involved in a real estate transaction. Even if the purchase is made in cash, it is still important for both buyers and sellers to protect their property rights with a title search. A title search reveals any potential claims to the property. Tax liens, mortgages, old debts, and other claims can all “cloud a title,” and prevent a seller from conveying clear title to the buyer at closing. This is why it is so important to have a professional title search performed. Lenders require title insurance, which protects the parties in the event that claims are later made against the property. Only “clear title” can be insured. Even if you do not have a lender requiring it, it is still highly advisable to have title insurance.
The most important part of closing is the signing of a deed that conveys the property from seller to buyer. This critical document affects the property rights and financial interests of both buyers and sellers for years to come. This is why it is so important to be sure that your deed is prepared and executed properly. An experienced real estate lawyer is the best professional to protect your legal interests regarding any property deed.
Until a deed is recorded, it cannot be enforced against other parties. This means that your property rights could be nullified entirely if your deed is not properly recorded. A real estate attorney can ensure that your deed is both prepared and recorded in a manner that will make it legally enforceable against other legal claims to the property.
