Real Estate Closings 

Our office generally acts as a neutral party in residential real estate closings bringing together the buyer and seller while coordinating with the lender, if any. Selecting the right person to handle your closing is important.  While title companies are licensed to close real estate transactions given that the most expensive part of the closing; the title insurance, is state regulated, why not have an attorney involved for the same exact cost?


Who selects the closing company is a matter of contract. 

Customarily in Palm Beach County the Seller selects while in Broward County, the Buyer selects.  The person who selects the title company pays the bulk of the title company's fees. As you are paying the charges, the selection of the title company is your choice.  You should check what any companies TOTAL fees are as you have a right to shop for title services.   Also, what services is the company providing?  


Will – and more importantly 

CAN - they help you if a problem arises?
