What are real estate closings?

A real estate closing is a complicated process and can easily overwhelm those not familiar with them. Most people are aware that the closing process involves filling out paperwork, but they might not know much more than that.

Herbert & Lux has the expertise to handle real estate closings so you don’t have to stress.

During a real estate closing, ownership of a property is handed from the seller to the buyer. A real estate closing is also called a settlement, and is generally the last step of a purchase of real estate. During the closing day, the final dispersal of funds will occur and the person selling the property will be paid what they are owed.

These are just a few of the things that happen on a real estate closing day:

  • The buyer provides payment for the purchase of the property.
  • The seller signs the deed of the property over to the new buyer.
  • HOA documents are signed, if applicable.
  • All funds for seller or buyer concessions are noted and exchanged.
  • Mortgage documents are finalized
  • The new deed is registered with the correct government office. This deed will legally show the buyer now owns the property.

How can hiring a real estate attorney help you?

The process of closing on a piece of real estate can be stressful if you’ve never done it before. Even if you have, every situation is different. A real estate attorney knows all the ins-and-outs of the paperwork and the legal side of these matters and can look out for your best interests at every step of the journey.

We can help you with matters such as:

  • Drafting and going over the purchase agreement
  • Evaluating the condition of the title to the property
  • Getting the documents signed and finalized for closing
  • Handling any issues when they arise
