We offer real estate transaction services to both buyers and sellers. If you are buying or selling a piece of real estate, protect your investment. Call Scaringi Law today for a consultation.

From Agreement of Sale to End of Closing

Our attorneys help you with every step of your real estate transaction. We start with the Agreement of Sale. If there is a contingency you need, such as selling your present residence, obtaining financing or having property inspections performed, we will make sure that the agreement contains a legally enforceable contingency clause.

Our firm's experience with the identification of issues and resolution of problems through every stage of a transaction allows our clients to deal with us instead of a title company or settlement agent. We also represent clients in sale-by-owner transactions executed without real estate agents or brokers.

We assist clients throughout the real estate transaction, including:

  • Agreement of Sale
  • Title search
  • Certifications of title
  • Deeds
  • Preparation of documents required for closing
  • Closing / settlement services for both mortgage sales and cash sales
  • Leases-including creation and transfers / assignments
  • Easement / right of way negotiation and document preparation
  • Mortgage sale

At the end, we attend the closing. We are on hand to answer questions and go over the documents one more time before closing the deal.

If there is a boundary line dispute, adverse possession or other issue that could turn into a dispute, we can handle that also.

Why Hire a Lawyer?

You are not required to have an attorney to buy real estate. So why not save money and just do it yourself?

You hire a lawyer to prevent costly mistakes. During our title searches, we check everything the old-fashioned way--by combing through the documents, one by one. When we trace the chain of title, we go back at least 70 years. Due to our thoroughness, we constantly run into defects in title. These include mortgages, judgments and other liens, easements or other encumbrances. Occasionally, we even discover a break in the chain of title. If the seller of the property doesn't legally own it, neither will the subsequent buyer.

Learning about these mistakes before you buy real property can prevent a nasty surprise down the road. If you are a seller, we can often help you clean up your title, or make contingencies for paying off encumbrances, so that your property is more marketable.

If you're a buyer, we can help make sure you're getting what you contracted and paid for and that you're not buying liens, debts or lawsuits.
