Do We Need A Lawyer For This?
You certainly should have title insurance to protect your investment, and most lenders require it. You will need an attorney if there is a problem with the title — we will review the title search documents, as well as any other legal documents that affect settlement.
It does not cost any more to acquire title insurance through Caldwell & Kearns, P.C., than through a separate title company — and you have the added protection of an experienced attorney overseeing your settlement at no additional cost. Our experienced real estate lawyers examine the deed and other title records for any hint of trouble, including:
- Liens against the property (e.g., mechanic’s lien filed by a builder)
- Unpaid real estate taxes
- Municipal claims
- Judgments against the seller’s assets
- Errors in legal descriptions of the property
- Covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs) on use of the property, such as easements
- Pending claims for quiet title/adverse possession
- Outsale of portions of the property to others
We also handle title insurance and related work for undeveloped land transactions in advance of commercial projects, residential subdivision and planned unit or condominium developments.
