Title Insurance is a form of insurance that protect you against potential losses related to title defects, liens, encumbrances, or other title issues that may arise. Title insurance provides assurance that the title to your property is valid and enforceable, and that any previous owners or lenders have no claims against it. Without title insurance, you could potentially be responsible for costs associated with any title issues or claims that arise, so it is important to have title insurance when purchasing a home.
The expense of securing a real estate attorney depends on several factors, including the type of legal services offered, the intricacy of the real estate deal, and the amount of time devoted to your case.

It is considered a conflict of interest for a single attorney to serve as legal representation for both the buyer and the seller in a real estate closing. This scenario creates the potential for ethical dilemmas, as the lawyer may have to make choices that prioritize one party over the other. It is advisable that each party engages their own legal counsel.
However, there are some limited exceptions to this rule. If you believe that your situation may qualify as one of these exceptions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss your case in detail.
