What Are Real Estate Settlements?

A real estate settlement, also known as the closing, is the last phase of buying or selling a property. The closing process involves many steps and an enormous amount of documentation.

During the settlement, many legal disclosures must be provided to buyers under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act. This act is a federal law devised to protect consumers.

Some of these closing 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

Prior to your closing date, contingencies or other complications can sometimes occur in real estate sales. These complications can stall or even stop a settlement, resulting 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.

What is a Closing Attorney and What Do They Do?

Under real estate law in Delaware, buying a home involves a title search. This title examination involves researching public records to find out if any liens on the property would make it nontransferable. This is a task for your real estate lawyer or a title company. Also, you may have questions regarding legal matters that your agent cannot answer.

Any real estate transaction involves enormous amount of documentation. This documentation 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. I can assist you with 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.

Who Chooses the Closing Attorney?

Typically a closing attorney is chosen by the seller, buyer, or the lender. They may help resolve any issues during the closing. However, this attorney doesn’t represent either party in the transaction, rather they are there to oversee the closing process.

It’s a good idea to hire your own attorney to ensure everything is in order and all the documentation is correct.
