In Georgia, an attorney is required to handle a real estate closing. A real estate transaction involves many considerations and must be handled in a competent and professional manner. Our attorneys handle a large volume and a wide range of commercial and residential real estate closings. We close transactions involving financing – both purchases/sales and refinances – as well as cash transactions. While in a standard residential loan closing we represent the lender, we are available to provide competent representation to any party in a transaction. We see the process from the beginning stages all the way through to the post closing process, which includes follow up on outstanding liens and other issues.

Many legal implications are associated with and can arise related to real estate closings. For example, the manner in which a purchaser takes title to real estate involves important considerations. Typically, if a loan is involved, the purchaser will take title as listed on the loan documents. But, individuals can take title as tenants in common or as joint tenants with rights of survivorship, and purchasers also can take title in the names of trusts and entities – the manner in which title is held can have tax and legal consequences, so a clear understanding of the applicable law is imperative in achieving the desired objectives. Our real estate attorneys have the benefit of working with the attorneys in the Business, Tax & Estate Planning area to best serve our clients’ needs.

As evidenced by headlines, mortgage fraud is a pervasive problem, and we work diligently in conjunction with the parties to the transactions, the lenders and the real estate agents to ensure that the transactions we handle are done so properly.

For many homebuyers, a real estate closing represents the largest dollar transaction in which they will ever be involved, not to mention being a transaction that involves their personal residence, their family home. Such a situation requires a closing attorney who is sensitive, professional and above all, an expert. Commercial real estate transactions, in turn, call for a sophisticated, experienced attorney, familiar with all the intricate aspects involved. At Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, we feel we offer the highest quality of legal expertise, whatever your level of need.
