In the state of South Carolina, it’s required that a closing attorney is present for the facilitation of the closing process. We understand that it might be tempting to try to cut costs and use the cheapest option you can find, but it’s always prudent to have a keen legal mind on hand for these situations – and that’s a situation we truly shine in. If you choose a real estate lawyer from our firm, you’re going to get access to a highly qualified professional, but without having to pay the exorbitant prices that you might expect – it’s the best of both worlds. To find out more about this provision, either read on below, or reach out to our customer service team as soon as possible.


What are Real Estate Closings?

You’re probably familiar with real estate closings to some extent, but how exactly are they processed, and why do they matter? A real estate closing is basically the final stage of a real estate transaction. The closing date – set during the negotiation phase – is where the ownership of the property in question is transferred to the purchasing party. There are a number of different stages involved, and these can vary considerably depending on a range of factors – like whether you’re getting a mortgage loan, for example. We’re experienced with all sorts of closings, so you’re in very safe hands with our team.


Sales and Purchases

Whether you’re purchasing a property, or you’re selling a property, you’ll be able to lean on our closing lawyers to get the transaction completed as expected. There are specific situations where both of these parties can benefit enormously from having a real estate closing attorney present, beyond the fact that it’s required by South Carolina law. Many people mistakenly believe that the review of the documents relating to the finances involved is all that is covered by a real estate closing attorney, but that’s not the case at all – there’s a number of ways that we can assist you.


Complex Documents

When the real estate closing process commences, it involves a broad and comprehensive review of all of the legal documents relating to the purchase of the property in question. There’s a huge amount to look at, and it can be quite intimidating for those without professional experience – this is especially the case with first-time homebuyers. We’re obviously more than capable of working through these documents, but we’ll also make sure that you understand everything that is going on as we proceed.


Varied Intervention

There are a number of different essential processes and activities that we’ll take care of during your closing process, and naturally, you can expect this all to run smoothly and seamlessly with us. Besides the review of the documents, we’ll also take care of title examination and title insurance, general coordination, and record and disbursement of funds.
