How a Columbus Residential Real Estate Attorney Can Help
The role of experienced legal counsel starts with verifying the legality of all aspects of the property transaction. At KSR, we provide clear explanations regarding the involved documents so our clients can know exactly what they’re signing without having to pour through the legal minutiae themselves.
When disputes arise, it can be invaluable to have an attorney there to advocate your case. Ultimately, real estate attorneys are there to prevent our clients from making expensive errors.
Specific examples of what a lawyer can do during the transaction process include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Confirming ownership: The seller has to have ownership of the property that is being sold. Verification includes examining any documents relevant to the property, including deeds, titles, and other legal documents, in order to confirm that the ownership is legitimate.
- Identifying and clearing potential roadblocks: This includes researching and identifying any unpaid loans, liens, litigation, or claims against the property, as well as uncovering any deed restrictions, covenants, and breaks in the chain of title. Our Columbus residential real estate lawyer can then work with the necessary parties to resolve these issues so that the transaction can proceed legally and smoothly.
- Arranging title insurance: Title insurance protects the buyer and lender from any defects in the title, such as liens or competing claims to ownership.
