One of the most common areas requiring legal representation is the purchase or sale of a home or other real estate. Our attorneys are able to represent you in connection with these transactions, as well as with land development, zoning, leasing and subdivision of land. In 1987, the firm handled over $20 million in residential and commerical real estate transactions.
Title insurance will protect you against loss, objection or damage to your legal interest in your property due to liens or defects in the title to the property.
Title Insurance is normally required in any real estate transaction where financing is involved. Your financial institution will advise you in advance of this requirement as part of the process of securing your mortgage.
We provide the title insurance you need and your financial institution requires at the lowest rate possible. Title Insurance rates are set by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, such that they are normally the same amount, whichever title insurance company is used for your settlement.
Title Insurance fees or rates will be supplied in advance to you so you will be aware of those final costs in advance of settlements.
Our settlement are handled by our attorneys and not by a title clerk, so that you have legal representation at the settlement table.
