Resolve Title Issues with Help from a Real Estate Attorney 

If you’ve ever dealt with a commercial or residential real estate contract, it can be extremely complicated. It’s especially daunting for first time homebuyers. The purchase of real estate requires a clear understanding of all the provisions. In many cases there can be disputes over the title of a property. This can cause major delays or headaches when it comes to closing.  That’s why it’s vital to have a qualified real estate attorney review all your documentation to ensure their client is getting a fair deal. The team at Goodwin Law, P.A. can help oversee the process to ensure the process goes smoothly.

Goodwin Law, P.A. is much more than just a law firm. We have considerable knowledge regarding the complications of real estate closings. It doesn’t take much for a real estate transaction to suddenly go sour. Many inexperienced and even experienced homebuyers don’t take the time to do a thorough title search for any defects. In addition to providing legal representation, Goodwin Law, P.A. can help against many title issues.

Among of the most common problems are errors in public records. Everyone makes mistakes. But when those errors affect home ownership rights, it can become a serious problem. Just a simple filing or clerical mistake can affect the drafting of a deed or the survey of your property.

Surprises are great for throwing parties. But they’re not very pleasant when it comes to real estate transactions. Many prior owners neglect to disclose important information and some may have been delinquent on their payments. If those owners have been irresponsible, you could be dealing with a property that could be issued a lien. Even if you’re not responsible for the debt, banks or other financial institutions can still place a lien on the property.  Unfortunately, not everyone is honest. There are many cases of forgeries on real estate documents to obscure the rightful ownership of a property. If you’re not careful, somebody else’s past forgeries can get you into trouble if they are discovered.
