Serving Banks and Other Financial Institutions in Real Estate Closings
We have been representing banks and other financial institutions and lenders for decades in connection with preparing title opinions, title insurance policies, escrow documents, and other closing matters in connection with real estate loans and closings. With our affiliated title company, we are able to act as a one-stop shop for lenders.
Our focus is on providing an organized, efficient, and comfortable closing experience for lender clients, which will reflect positively on their brand. Our reputation and trust have been earned through the more than 40 years that attorneys Robert Houston and Kerry Thompson have been practicing law, as well as the impeccable reputation of our other attorneys. We are proud to have received an AV Preeminent ranking by Martindale-Hubbell, which signifies the highest level of professional excellence bestowed by that company, as the result of reviews by our peers.
Closing Document Preparation
As real estate closing attorneys, we are familiar with the numerous regulations and documents that must be completed in connection with real estate closings and mortgages. We review and prepare all required documentation required by lenders and by law.
