How a Home Closing Attorney Can Help You

Unlike many states, Texas does not require an attorney to be present during the closing of a real estate transaction. However, it is helpful to both the buyer and seller to have a legal professional’s assistance for several reasons. In short, they make the closing process easier for everyone and ensure that both parties understand their contracts. They review documents to identify potential issues and explain complex language to their clients. These are just a few of the ways Attorney Eric Smith can assist you when closing on a home purchase:
  1. Examining the Title: Prior to closing, the attorney will search and examine the property’s title records. The purpose of this is to identify any unknown liens against the property, unpaid mortgages, and easements. If they find any potential issues, the lawyer will explain and deal with the problems before moving on with the closing.
  2. Deed Verification: The attorney will also verify that the deed is valid and that the seller is the true owner of the property.
  3. Negotiating Contract Terms: When representing a buyer in a real estate transaction, an attorney can potentially negotiate the terms of the closing contract.
  4. Reviewing & Explaining Documents: A lawyer will review and explain all documents related to the sale of the property including the deed, settlement statement, loan documents, and more. When representing a seller, an attorney focuses on preparing documents and ensuring everything is finalized properly.
  5. Handling Disputes: Occasionally, disputes occur during the process of the transaction. They can often be handled outside of court by negotiations, which a lawyer can be very helpful in assisting with. If a dispute can’t be settled outside of court, you can hire an attorney to represent you in litigation.
