The closing agent will route the various documents to each of the parties for review and signature. When you’re signing your documents, you are consenting to the terms outlined in the documents.
Having an experienced real estate attorney with you to review these documents will give you the peace of mind and confidence to know that what you’re signing is exactly what you think you’re signing. An attorney can explain everything to you, give you clarity, and ensure that there is nothing within the documents that shouldn’t be there. Anyone can make a mistake and add a change to your settlement sheet, for instance, and that’s something your attorney could catch and resolve for you.
You never want to sign documents without reviewing them and feeling comfortable that you understand what you’re agreeing and consenting to with your signature. With an attorney whose objective is to ensure your rights are protected, you can sign your documents with confidence and have no concerns when going into the closing.
Once all documents have been reviewed, signed, and notarized, they are going to go back to the closing agent. The deed, in its original form, will be recorded. All documents required by the lender will be recorded and sent to the lender and then the mortgage will be recorded.
The last thing that you can expect to happen at closing is that the keys and garage door openers will be given to the buyer by the seller, or through the seller’s real estate agent.
How To Choose The Right Real Estate Attorney In Pennsylvania?
When hiring a qualified real estate attorney in Pennsylvania, it’s important to choose one who…
- You can trust,
- Explains things in a way you understand,
- You can be confident in, and
- Has experience in real estate.
Whenever you hire an attorney or any other professional, it’s going to come down to what you need and what is being offered to you. You’re going to want to ensure that the attorney you hire is within your budget and will offer the services you’re going to need. Your attorney should be someone who communicates effectively with you, answers your questions and concerns, and is able to explain things in a way that you can understand. Rather than assuming an attorney will know exactly what you need, don’t be afraid to ask them what their level of expertise is in real estate transactions.
If you’re spending a thousand dollars with an attorney to review documents, what problems are you potentially avoiding and does avoiding those problems potentially save you a comparable amount of money overall? This is one of the questions that you should ask yourself when hiring a real estate attorney.
If you’re buying a commercial property, it’s essential that you hire an attorney who has experience with commercial real estate. An attorney who only has experience with residential real estate won’t necessarily have the knowledge to ensure you’re protected throughout a commercial real estate transaction.
