Finding property, setting your budget, inspecting homes, etc., are everything you can do to prepare for a real estate purchase. While you focus on the big picture of your sale, your property attorney will work on the legal details. As such, our legal team assists with:
Real estate transactions require extensive legal documentation (especially commercial property sales). Your attorney will assist in the prep of crucial documents like loan agreements, easement agreements, purchase agreements, title transfer documents, and more.
If documentation is provided by the seller, lenders, real estate agents, or another legal representative, our attorneys can review documents for potential errors, loopholes or discrepancies.
In performing due diligence for the property being sold or purchased, your attorney will initiate a title search. A title search can uncover issues like property liens, unpaid property taxes, zoning discrepancies, etc. If our team discovers issues, we work to resolve them promptly.
Before lenders can agree to support your property purchase, they expect certain protections for their investment. In response, Buxton & Collie can help connect you with title insurance companies. If unforeseen issues arise with your property’s title, title insurance ensures you (and lenders) are covered.
There are more state and federal regulations surrounding purchasing, selling, or leasing of commercial property. Thankfully, our real estate transaction attorney for Charleston County SC understands how to navigate commercial property sales involving zoning, tenant laws, land use, disclosure laws and more.
As is required by South Carolina real estate law, an attorney must be present at the closing of your property transaction. Buxton & Collie acts as an impartial third party to your sale. At final closing, we provide and explain all documents, act as a witness to negotiations, distribute funds, and record your sale with local government entities.
