Closings

A house closing may seem like a long meeting with a lot of boring paperwork to sign.

House Closings

Still, whether you are buying or selling, it’s important to have an attorney you can trust explaining each document in plain language before you add your signature. Buyers and sellers often have conflicting interests as a home or property changes hands

While the real estate agent often acts as your representative during the process, he or she may use printed contract forms. Those require changes so they apply specifically to your situation. Otherwise, you may be left unprotected in case of a legal issue later, such as:

● If the property was altered unlawfully.
● If termites, asbestos, hazardous waste, radon, or lead-based paint is found on the property.
● If the closing does not take place for some reason.

Those legally binding documents may not feel like a big deal at the time, but if you have problems later with the home, you’ll want to know your rights. Buying and selling a home is one of the largest financial transactions of your life. Be sure you have an experienced home closings attorney guiding you through the process.

What Our Clients

Have Said...

Oliver and Sherrie M. – Car Accident

“We were hit head-on by someone who run a red light. I got bruised up real bad inside and I had just had shoulder surgery and it inflamed that. My wife was hurt the worst. It disfigured her right arm. We were referred to Mr. West through our son-in-law so we went up and set an appointment with him. We went in and met him for the first time and he is a very nice gentleman to say the least. He took over the case and found out who the [driver] was. It had totaled the car and I had just gotten it paid off. They didn’t even get hurt. Mr. West took the case and went way out of his way to help. The lady who hit us … they had only the cheapest insurance to get the car on the road … so he helped us get more money to help us pay the bills. We are very happy with how it turned out. Kelly and West, they’re good people. You can talk to them and they’re down home people.”
