Why an Attorney?
In Florida, you are not required to use a law firm as your closing agent. However, when your money is on the line, we believe that it is critical to have an attorney involved in the sale and purchase of real estate. This point is often overlooked, but should a legal issue arise, with Southtrust Law & Title you have the added benefit of a lawyer on your side.
When your money is on the line we believe that it is critical to have an attorney involved in the sale and purchase of real estate.
These are but a few of the many potential title defects that might affect the property you are purchasing. Without an owner’s title insurance policy, you won’t be protected against:
- Forged deeds, mortgages, releases of mortgages and other instruments.
- False impersonation of the true owner of the land.
- Deeds executed under a fabricated or expired power of attorney.
- Deeds apparently valid but actually delivered after the death of the grantor or grantee, or without the consent of grantor.
- Descriptions of properties apparently but not actually adequate.
Finally, as attorneys, Southtrust Law is required to treat all parties with the ethical guidelines and codes of conduct established by the Florida Bar. In contrast, a non-attorney closing agent does not have that requirement. When you close with Southtrust, an attorney is involved with every transaction. Let us handle your closing and see the difference an attorney makes!
