Selling a Home

We want you to arrive at the closing table knowing what is going on. You should know how much money you will get at least one day before closing.

Why do you need a lawyer to sell a home?

Selling a home often is the most expensive transaction someone will ever make. In order to make a sound agreement that you can feel protected and comfortable with, you will need a professional real estate lawyer to help you sell your home. In the typical home purchase, the seller will enter into a brokerage agreement with a real estate agent, usually in writing. A CT real estate lawyer will help ensure you are protected in the sale before signing these contracts. A real estate attorney is needed when selling a house in Connecticut to do the closing on the sale, as well as securing many documents as legally binding and safe. The seller should have the advice and guidance of an attorney with respect to a brokerage agreement. Even when an agreement is a standard form, you'll need a real estate attorney to explain the contract as well as determine if the contract is properly signed. Contact the Law Office of Chris Albanese to get started selling your house.

Services you can expect a real estate lawyer to provide in your selling process:

  • Determine mortgage payoff amounts - Your payoff amount is how much you will actually have to pay to satisfy the terms of your mortgage loan and pay off your debt.
  • Draw the appropriate deed of conveyance - A deed of conveyance is a signed legal document that shows a title or deed has been transferred. It is used to prove ownership in a piece of property.
  • Calculating all required conveyance taxes - Conveyance tax is a tax imposed on the transfer of real property, at the state, county or municipal level.
  • Review of the buyers' attorney's title examination. - Title examination is a close examination of all CT public records that affect the title to the real estate you are purchasing.
  • Preparation of closing documentation
  • Ensure proper execution of all sellers documents
  • Represent you at closing
  • Securing releases of mortgages on the property

Things to be aware of when closing your home sale.

Forty percent of all closings happen at the end of the month. This means that lenders, real estate agents, appraisers, title searchers, lawyers, and everyone else involved in the closing process are swamped. You should seek to close during the first three weeks of the month if at all possible.

Please be aware that,THE CLOSING DATE CAN BE EXTENDED BY ANY PARTY BY 30 DAYS WITHOUT THE OTHER PARTY'S OKAY UNLESS YOUR CONTRACT READS "TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE."
