Why You Should Hire an Attorney as Your Florida Real Estate Closing Agent

Smiling couple with key of new homeBuying or selling a house or commercial property is one of the most important transactions an individual, couple, or business will ever make.

Although your real estate agent may suggest a Florida closing agent they normally work with, it is ultimately the decision of the buyer or seller, depending on who is paying the closing costs, to choose the Florida closing agent for their Florida real estate transaction. Hiring a Florida real estate closing attorney as your closing agent has many benefits including:

–          Access to a title search that is only available to attorneys: This title search is often more accurate than the title searches performed by non-attorney closing agents.

–          Review of Title Search:Hiring a Florida real estate attorney, such as Boyer Law Firm, P.L., will ensure that the issues (clouds) found on the title search are properly resolved before the closing is completed and the property is transferred. If this is not done properly, the clouds on the title, such as an unpaid mortgage or unpaid homeowner’s association fees, could transfer to and become the responsibility of the buyer of the property.

–          Drafting and Review of Documents: Because only an attorney can offer legal advice and draft additional documents that may be needed, it is highly beneficial to hire a Florida real estate attorney to draft the closing documents for the sale of the property.

–          Fees/Costs: The fees for a real estate closing are often the same and the State of Florida sets the cost for title insurance premiums.
