Real Estate Attorney v. Title Company

Purchasing a new home can be overhelming, which is why having a real estate attorney as your closing agent can ensure a smooth closing process from start to finish.

Advantages of a Real Estate Attorney

Title insurance obtained through an attorney is priced the same as from a title company because title insurance rates are promulgated by the Department of Insurance. In addition, closing costs charged by both an attorney acting as a closing agent and a title company are comparable.

In this article we will share what the differences are in using a Real Estate Attorney rather than a title company for your next closing.

For starters, choosing to use an attorney as a closing agent provides the client with legal representation throughout the closing transaction, as opposed to a title agent who cannot offer legal advice or direction. Real estate attorney’s provide expertise with contract negotiations, drafting contract addenda’s, and drafting nonstandard documents. They also make changes to standard documents when necessary to address any specific issues with respect to the property, title requirements, or the transaction in general.

Real estate attorneys also provide invaluable legal advice throughout the process. Whereas, a title company is limited to preparing basic documents solely used to issue a title insurance policy.

Realtors Benefit too.

In addition, Realtors also benefit from working with attorneys because the attorney can assist the realtor with contract preparation, answering any legal questions for the client during negotiations, and drafting any relevant documents. Moreover, if the title search or survey reveal any potential issues, the attorney can provide legal advice as to the best way to resolve the issue and help cure the issue. A title company cannot provide these benefits.
