At Leonard & Moore, PLLC in Asheville, NC, one of our main goals is to ensure that the real estate closing process goes as smoothly as possible for you.
Buying a new home can be extremely exciting. However, before you can start picking out paint colors and moving in furniture, the real estate closing process needs to be completed. This is the last step in the buying process and officially transfers ownership of the new home from the seller to the buyer. At Leonard & Moore, PLLC in Asheville, North Carolina, our team of real estate legal professionals has over 50 years of combined experience. While you may already have your real estate agent planning to assist you with the real estate closing, we recommend having a lawyer by your side during the process, as well because:
- The real estate closing process can be confusing. Both buyers and sellers alike can become overwhelmed during the closing process due to the numerous documents they are required to sign and the legal jargon that is often included. When you work with us at Leonard & Moore, PLLC, we will go over these documents with you and ensure you fully understand the terms and agreements.
- Disputes may arise. Your real estate agent may not have the legal expertise necessary to settle any problems that may arise with the closing process. Our legal team will ensure that if any issues do come up, they will be settled quickly and fairly on your behalf.
- Certain regulations need to be followed. In North Carolina, there are several laws surrounding the proper transfer of property from one owner to another. We will help you understand these regulations in order to ensure that you are able to get into your new home as soon as possible. We can also provide you with legal advice if you ever have any questions or concerns about the process.
- There may be title problems. Before the final purchase is made, we will do a full check on the home’s title and make sure any problems are resolved before closing.
