SOUTH FLORIDA REAL ESTATE MORTGAGE LAWYERS

With the South Florida market experiencing a boom in sales and values, there is more great news to assist qualified buyers with their real estate purchases.  Starting January 2018, FHFA has increased the conforming loan limits for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac conventional loans.  This means that the limits to purchase, prior to  the mortgage being considered a jumbo loan, are higher.

Starting on January 1, 2018, the loan limits for conventional loans has increased from $424,100 to $453,100.

With house prices on the rise, this is great news for buyers looking to finance their purchases.

Real Estate Buyers now have more purchase power under conventional funding.  And current or prior qualified jumbo pre-approved buyers and borrowers may qualify for traditional financing now, possibly at a lower interest rate and a lower down payment.  This equates in more opportunities to close on those real estate deals for realtors and sellers alike.

Don’t go it alone.  Always hire the services of a qualified real estate attorney owned title company to assist you in your real estate purchase and to help navigate all the confusing mortgage terms and conditions.

Whether you are buying real estate and require a mortgage or buying cash, before you sign the contract, reach out to us. We are here to help.  We offer a free legal consultation regarding your real estate contract, purchase or sale.

With over 18 years experience practicing real estate law, and holding dual licenses of both lawyer, realtor and accountant,  allow attorney Jacqueline A. Salcines to guide you.

MORTGAGE LAW

What happens to escrows, or monies held by the mortgage company for insurance and taxes after a closing when the property is sold?  Mortgage escrows are funds paid by the borrower when making their monthly  mortgage payment, for the payment of insurance and taxes on the yearly anniversary dates.  These monies belong to the homeowner or borrower and are held in reserve until the bank pays them.

Once a real estate closing takes place and the mortgage is paid off, what happens to those monies?  The bank is not paying taxes or insurance and therefore, the monies will not be paid to any third party company.

The monies advanced for escrows are then required to be returned by the lender, within a date certain. Borrowers are urged to advise their mortgage companies of their correct addresses so that the checks reach them once issued and mailed.  The bank will not wire the funds or send the checks certified mail. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to make sure the bank has their correct address.

Acting as title agents and representing our sellers in transaction, we go beyond regular routine closing services and after closing, our team at the Law Offices of Jacqueline Salcines, PA makes sure that they monies are received by the seller borrower.  “Until that check is received, we do not close out our file.”

At the Law Offices of Jacqueline A. Salcines, P.A. we have been assisting buyers and sellers, with their real estate needs since 1999.  We are a full service title company and extremely knowledgeable in FIRPTA rules and regulations.

Whether you are buying, selling or refinancing, we will handle all of the details and represent you from contract to closing.

SOUTH FLORIDA REAL ESTATE LAWYER

TITLE SERVICES – TITLE COMPANY

Buyers and seller alike should always hire an attorney to represent them and their interests for a real estate closing and real estate transaction. Whether you are buying in Miami Dade County and require the title company to represent you, examine the property title, and prepare a title commitment, or you are a seller of real estate and require not only contract review and revisions, but assistance with document preparation, you must always hire an attorney.

While many states only allow real estate attorneys  to conduct real estate closings, Florida is not one of them. Therefore, many sellers opt to use the title company selected by the buyer in order to represent them. However, that opposing party title company does not represent you. They will charge a fee for document preparation, or settlement services, but at the end of the day, if there is an issue, you are on  your own.

Seller services can include contract preparation, contract review, addendums, inspections negotiations for credits, and a host of different documents required whether the seller is a trust, or a company. There are also issues relating to death of the title holder or liens on the property. 

As a buyer,  the title company will also help with contract preparation or review, run title, run lien searches and prepare closing statements.

While no two real estate transactions are ever alike, no matter whether you are on the seller side or the buyer side, do not go it alone.

At the Law Offices of Jacqueline A. Salcines, P.A. we have been assisting foreigners, both buyers and sellers, with their real estate needs since 1999.  We are a full service title company and extremely knowledgeable in FIRPTA rules and regulations.

Whether you are buying, selling or refinancing, we will handle all of the details and represent you from contract to closing.
