Whether you need a contract reviewed, assistance at closing or verification of clear title, we will provide effective legal support and work tirelessly to successfully close your deal.
We handle residential and commercial property sales
Each residential purchase is unique and personal and requires careful planning and execution to secure the right property is purchased at a fair price. Commercial transactions require an attorney with detailed knowledge of financing, taxation, zoning and land use issues to ensure your business interests are well-represented. We understand the nuances of both residential and commercial sales and will give your matter careful attention and analysis.
We offer detailed drafting and contract review
In Maryland, all that is needed to complete a sale is:
- A signed writing that identifies the property and includes the basic terms of the contract
- Statutory disclosures
- A deed
Real estate contracts do not require attorney review, but
proceeding to contract without legal counsel can leave you with ambiguous language and potential future litigation. We provide thorough analysis and detailed drafting services for new and existing agreements and will work to verify your contract is reasonable and free from questionable language.
Our group provides title search and clearance services
To legally transfer property, the seller must hold title. A title search verifies whether there is, in fact, a clear title and valid ownership, or if defects exist that could invalidate the sale, such as a forged deed, unpaid tax liens or claims by undisclosed heirs. We have extensive experience conducting in-depth title searches and know how to cure a defective title so the sale can proceed.
We have years of experience executing real estate closings
Closing is the last step in the process, when essential documents are reviewed and finalized and money and property change hands. It is the final opportunity to identify issues and object to potential problems. Having an attorney at this meeting allows you to confirm all the necessary documents are included and that settlement is proper. We assist in all aspects of residential and commercial closings and will keep you fully informed every step of the way.
