Congratulations on your upcoming purchase!
Your newly accepted contract is an important first step in the process towards purchasing real estate, and it is our pleasure to be representing your legal interests in reference to this transaction. Please do not hesitate to contact this office 24/7 during this process. Your Attorney will generally respond to all of your inquiries within 1 hour, and never later than 24 hours. We have reviewed your contract, and would like to provide you with the following guidelines and deadlines, as we move towards closing together.
Email Communications & Action Items
In the event any action items are required of you, you will be addressed directly in email so that we can work on these items together. You may be blind copied on other communications issued by this office and will not need to respond, as these communications are for your informational purposes only. Please be careful when responding to emails which may include other parties. The best practice when sending email correspondence is to be sure that only your representatives are included in your emails.
If your contract will stipulate that you will be paying cash at closing. Your cash payment at closing incorporates the purchase price of the property, as well as any title insurance costs, and miscellaneous closing costs, as applicable. The Seller Attorney will order title, and will provide an invoice for any title company fees to be paid at closing. Alternatively, please notify your Attorney immediately if you intend to obtain financing.
Title and Survey
You will be provided with an owner’s title insurance policy and survey, both of which are traditionally provided at closing by the Seller, at Seller’s cost. The title insurance policy is designed to ensure that you are receiving clear and valid title at closing, free of defects or liens on title, and the survey is designed to ensure the boundary lines of the property are free from encroachments.
Municipal Building Requirements
To the extent that you intend to build on your vacant land, you should be sure to check directly with the municipal building department where your land is situated to confirm that there are no impediments to building. The municipal building department will be able to provide you with full guidelines and permit requirements, as applicable.

Literally thousands of satisfied Buyers and Sellers in multiple counties.
“We would like to thank you and your staff for your representation during our business sale transaction, involving a complex sale of our corporate assets, and associated real estate. The transaction from listing to sale was completed well ahead of schedule, and your expertise, counseling, and professionalism served to push the deal along quickly. Very impressed, to say the least!”
“You have been a lifesaver. Your expertise and kindness during our closing helped to iron out what could have been a giant mess. Thanks a million!”
“Very knowledgable lawyer. A+. We got to the closing table in less than a month, and closed the entire transaction in under 30 minutes. Amazing attorney. Very grateful.”
“My parents are both Spanish speakers, and required a bilingual attorney. Not only did our attorney provide us with emails in Spanish every step of the way, he also made himself available by cell, even after hours and on the weekends. We are totally blown away by this lawyer. Will recommend to everyone we know. Gracias!”
“We sold our family home in a very contentious environment, everyone bickering, and no one was easy to please. You sat down with us on many occasions and helped to clear the air, and keep everyone satisfied. To add insult to injury, we had a very problematic buyer who nitpicked every last detail. The Buyer’s attorney was no help, and the deal was close to dying until our attorney worked his magic. Could not have closed without you. Thank you!!!”
“Great lawyer, great counselor, great person all around. We are very pleased with your services. You saved us thousands of dollars in value, just because you care. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
