We provide you with a seamless process to ensure all legal requirements are completed prior to your closing date.
Navigating a real estate transaction in the state of North Carolina is a complex process that requires an attorney to perform the legal work involved in buying, selling, or refinancing a home. Your attorney is responsible for completing the many steps and requirements that need to be undertaken in order to execute your home purchase, sale, or refinance on closing day.
In order to take out a mortgage on your property, the title to the property must be approved for a loan. We simplify this process for our clients by working directly with your lender to ensure the property title is clear of any issues and ready for loan approval.
The closing process for cash buyers is significantly more efficient, as it eliminates a lender from the equation. However, an attorney is still required in order to complete all the legal requirements, but the timeframe for closing is much shorter.
We work with you and your lender to streamline the process of refinancing your home loan. We ensure your title is approved for the new loan, and once all legal requirements are met, we facilitate the transition between the lenders.
When you hire Shepard Law to represent you in a real estate matter, we handle the bulk of the work behind the scenes to ensure that all the legal requirements are met and all the money is collected and dispersed appropriately. Our legal team acts as a central line of communication for all parties involved in your real estate transaction.
Among the most important tasks we perform is conducting and analyzing a title search to verify your property is free and clear of any encumbrances and to identify any issues that need to be resolved prior to closing. We also prepare the closing statement showing how the money is dispersed and the amount you will need to pay on closing day. This, of course, is an oversimplified view of what needs to be done, but you can rest assured that we will handle the other details as well.
