Real Estate Closings in Fort Myers, FL

Lee County Real Estate Law Firm for Closings

The Fort Myers real estate attorneys at Your Advocates routinely handle real estate closings on behalf of both buyers and sellers. If you are selling or buying a home, condominium, a commercial building, or vacant land, we have the experience and ability to help! Having a knowledgeable, experienced real estate lawyer in Lee County handling your closing affords you the peace of mind that no stone will be left unturned, and all of the issues relating to title transfer will be cleared in time for a successful and uneventful closing.

Let Your Advocates Fight for You!

When seemingly well-intentioned, but inexperienced, closing agents or lawyers attempt to handle these cases, there are often problems on the day of closing. HUD statements that are filled out incorrectly, title issues that were not noticed relating to prior judgments and faulty deeds in the chain of title, mortgages that contain errors prior to execution by the parties, and often, the delay of funds being transmitted by the lenders all can hold up a closing and even postpone it to another day. When you as a buyer or a seller are visiting from out of town or out of state to attend a closing, delays are not a welcome part of the trip.

Our firm will ensure that all the elements necessary for a successful, smooth closing are in place before everyone meets at the closing table.

Avoid delays with the help of our real estate lawyer.

A smooth closing requires attention to detail and careful preparation. Although the seller's representative usually prepares the documents for closing, the deed, the mortgage if any, and all supporting documents, affidavits, disclosures and payoffs for prior mortgages, we also inspect said documents prior to closing so that there's time for corrections to be made.

If you want to sell or buy real estate with as little drama and delay as possible, feel free to contact us and schedule a consultation with our team today.
