Residential Real Estate Closings

Whether you are buying your dream home or you are purchasing your starter home, one of our skilled real estate lawyers can help you navigate the entire closing process. Real estate documents are not written in plain English. They contain technical and legal language, making it challenging for the average person to understand their obligations and rights under the law. 

One of our attorneys will carefully review your closing documents to ensure that there are no red flags and help you understand all of the terms of your agreement. We will assist you with the contract signing through the closing. Unfortunately, buyers and sellers do not always agree on the purchase agreement terms. When a dispute arises, delays and litigation can happen. Conflicts that commonly occur in residential real estate transactions include the following:

  • What items are included in the real estate sale
  • Whether repairs need to be made to the property
  • When possession of the property will occur, and
  • Issues related to land use and zoning

Real Estate Owned (REO) Closings

A Real Estate Owned (REO) closing involves a sale in which the seller is a lender, government loan insurer, or governmental agencies. Most REO closings occur due to a foreclosure on a defaulted mortgage loan.

Not every South Carolina attorney understands the nuances of REO transactions.
