Milton Real Estate Settlement Attorney

Providing Professional Legal Help to Buyers & Sellers in Sussex County

Buying or selling real property can be a complicated and sometimes frustrating affair for both sellers and buyers. Purchasing a home or commercial property can involve many questions, issues, and decisions that must be understood and dealt with throughout the process. As a buyer, your future home or investment property will likely become your biggest asset, so doing your due diligence is vital. On the other side, sellers are also subject to many obligatory actions and procedures under state laws designed to provide transparency to buyers. When it comes to real estate settlements, many issues can arise between buyers and sellers that need the experienced help of a legal professional to produce a satisfactory resolution. Adkins Law Firm can help.

What Are Real Estate Settlements?

A real estate settlement, also known as the closing, is the last phase of buying or selling a property. It involves many steps and an enormous amount of documentation. Prior to this stage, contingencies or other complications can sometimes occur in real estate sales that can stall or even stop a settlement, which commonly results in what is known as “falling out of escrow.” Buyers and sellers are then left with the frustrating prospect of starting all over again in their quest for a purchase or sale. During the settlement, many legal disclosures must be provided to buyers under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, which is a federal law devised to protect consumers.

Some of these disclosures include:

  • Information booklet explaining closing costs
  • Good Faith Estimate of what those closing costs will likely be
  • Mortgage Service Disclosure Statement
  • HUD-1 Settlement Statement, which shows actual closing costs

What Does a Settlement Attorney Do?

Buying a home in Delaware involves a title search, which means researching public records to find out if any liens have been placed on the property that would make it nontransferable to a new buyer. This is a task for your Milton real estate lawyer or a title company. Also, you may have questions regarding legal matters that your agent cannot answer.

In any real estate purchase or sale, an enormous amount of documentation is used that uses legal language a normal person often finds impossible to understand. As your attorney, I can guide you through this paperwork as well as research any unusual aspects of the property such as illegal units, boundary or easement issues, and more. I can write specific and detailed contracts if you have any type of unusual situation that needs to be handled. All of this is done to ensure that your interests are thoroughly protected throughout the process and settlement.
