Hand with a house key.IN THIS DAY AND AGE, AFTER THE MORTGAGE CRISIS, IT IS A CRAZY THOUGHT TO ENTER INTO A PURCHASE SALES CONTRACT TO BUY A PROPERTY WIHTOUT ENLISTING THE ASSISTANCE AND ADVICE OF A REAL ESTATE ATTORNEY.  ALMOST 50 PERCENT OF ALL HOMES HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY THIS MORTGAGE CRISIS, EQUATING TO ISSUES ON TITLE, MORTGAGE ASSIGNMENTS NOT BEING RECORDED, LOST OR UNASSIGNED MORTGAGES WHEREIN THE LENDER IS IMPOSSIBLE TO REACH, OR TITLE ISSUES ARISING WITH THE DEED.

AN ATTORNEY TO ASSIST AT CLOSING IS MORE AFFORDABLE THAN YOU THINK. AND OFFERS THE MUCH NEEDED THOROUGH LOOK THROUGH AND EXAMINATION OF TITLE AS WELL AS CODE VIOLATIONS, LIENS AND OTHER ITEMS THAT COME UP DURING CLOSING.  IF YOU SIMPLY RELY ON A TITLE COMPANY THAT REPRESENTS THE SELLER OR A TITLE COMPANY THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ATTORNEY BACKING IT, YOU ARE RUNNING THE RISK THAT ISSUES MAY ARISE RIGHT BEFORE CLOSING, WHEREIN YOUR DEPOSIT MAY BE AT RISK OR WORSE, AFTER CLOSING, WHEN YOU HAVE ALREADY SIGNED AND THE PROPERTY AND PROBLEMS ARE NOW YOURS.

AT MY FIRM, WE ASSIST BUYERS AND SELLERS ALIKE, WITH ALL THEIR REAL ESTATE AND TITLE NEEDS.  AS A TITLE AGENT ATTORNEY, JACQUELINE A. SALCINES, ESQ. EXAMINES TITLE AND REVIEWS ALL ISSUES TO FIND THEIR SOLUTION PRIOR TO CLOSING.  WE CAN NOT CLOSE IF AN ISSUE ARISES ON TITLE THAT IS NOT RESOLVED. IT IS UP TO THE SELLER TO CURE ALL TITLE ISSUES PRIOR TO CLOSING.
