A commercial transaction can often present more complexities than a residential transaction. We are experienced in a wide range of commercial real estate transactions including contract drafting, leasing, acquisitions, mortgage financing, development, and construction.
Essential to any real estate transaction is a thorough and accurate title search. The purpose of a title search is to identify the owner of the property with the right and authority to enter a transaction to convey the property. The process involves, among other things, a thorough review of all deeds in the chain of title, identifying any encumbrances on the property, which may include mortgages, mechanics’ liens, tax liens, judgments, encroachments, or legal matters that could jeopardize your ownership or claim to the property.
As an escrow agent and disbursement agent, we receive and hold documents and deposit funds in anticipation for closing real estate transactions. You can rest assured knowing that a neutral third party is safeguarding your documents and funds until the transaction successfully closes.
A title insurance policy is a policy of indemnity that protects the purchaser’s interest against a defect in title that may arise from a defective deed, liens, judgments, encroachments, or other matters affecting title to real property. In a typical real estate purchase and sale transaction, there are usually two policies of title insurance – a loan or mortgagee policy, and an owner’s policy, protecting the lender and the purchaser against any claims that may arise due to past title defects.
