Real Estate Closings
Clawson and Staubes has performed thousands of residential and commercial real estate closings. Our real estate attorneys have the experience to guide you through the often complicated and high-stakes process of residential and commercial real estate closings. Clawson and Staubes also has a wholly owned subsidiary that provides title insurance through several major title insurance companies. We can coordinate title exams throughout the state and oversee the underwriting of title insurance commitments and policies for transactions.
Residential real estate purchasers face numerous challenges and risks, including the completion of title searches, the resolution of complex title issues and the efficient closing of the mortgage loan. The attorneys of Clawson and Staubes handle all aspects of residential real estate closings and other transactions, purchases, sales, refinances, negotiations and real estate-owned (REO) properties. We have experience representing buyers, sellers and financial institutions in closings and can manage your entire loan process and residential loan closing.
The buyers of commercial property must make dozens of crucial decisions before and even during closing. Where will you borrow the purchase money and under what terms? Can the property you are purchasing be used for the purpose intended? Is the seller’s ownership of the property undisputed, or do other parties also assert full or partial ownership? Further, commercial property transactions are time consuming and highly detailed. Our experienced commercial real estate attorneys can assist throughout this process, providing you with the counsel you need to complete commercial transactions.
