A real estate attorney is highly valuable and can advise buyers and sellers on real estate issues such as rental agreements, the accuracy of contract terms and conditions, drafting contracts, ownership and title issues, property inspections and disclosures, and closing procedures. Having one can make a huge difference as they can limit future problems and guarantee a fair transaction.
Closing represents the final step in a real estate transaction. Property ownership is officially transferred from the seller to the buyer. The process begins with the parties signing the contract of sale. Throughout the way, various contingencies and obligations need to be satisfied by both the buyer and seller for the transaction to keep moving forward.
A real estate contract is a legally binding agreement between two parties, a buyer and a seller, for the sale and purchase of a piece of real property. The seller agrees to sell, and the buyer agrees to buy the property. With the contract, the transfer of ownership happens when the buyer pays, and the seller delivers.
When closing on a home there are important steps to make the process easier. Closing on a home is when you officially purchase the property. On closing day, you sign all the purchase paperwork. You sign your mortgage documents, pay your down payment, and closing costs, and approve any repairs that are required by the home inspection.
For a closing the major steps are to open escrow, conduct a title search and get insurance, hire an attorney, negotiate junk fees, conduct a home inspect, consider subsequent negotiations, remove contingencies, sign the purchase and sales agreement, secure financing, appraise the house, get insurance, release contingencies, receive the closing disclosure, complete the final walkthrough.
At closing, bring all closing documents, a photo ID, cashier’s check, closing disclosure, proof of insurance and professional representation.
