In 1857, notable and infamous outlaw James Copeland
was hung in Perry County. His execution and the deaths of his fellow gang leaders, Gale H. Wages and Charles "Preacher" McGrath, were all the result of a botched real estate title fraud!
A farmer was tricked into buying property from one of their associates who did not have full rights to the title, and when he refused to pay, and the gang came looking for their coin, guns and powder did the rest.
But real estate frauds, as well as title disputes from more honest mistakes and unforeseen consequences, did not die with them. While they would now be resolved with a real estate lawsuit rather than gunfire, they could still easily ruin your life.
Any real estate transaction today is a serious investment for a family or for a business, and it is vital to know ahead of time exactly what you are getting into. This is where a real estate lawyer comes into play.
How Will A Real Estate Attorney Reduce The Risk Of My Perry County Real Estate Transaction?
While real estate debacles are likely to be less bloody in the 21st century, they can still cost you everything. A real estate lawyer will check, double check, and verify all the legal requirements and conditions before helping you cross the ts and dot the is on your purchase or sale.
Get A Fast And Efficient Title Opinion
The title is the legal deed of the property, and it is important to make sure that it is entirely in order before proceeding with a purchase or sale. The last thing you want is to learn halfway through moving in that half the property actually belongs to someone else.
That is why before any real estate transaction can proceed in Mississippi, in theory, a title opinion must be sought and obtained. Perry County is no exception. Overcoming this legal hurdle is simple and straightforward, though. Give our real estate law firm a call at (601) 401-6134,
and you can even have it within a day if needed.
Verify All Liens So You Can Proceed With Your Real Estate Transaction
One key element of a title search and real estate transaction verification is to make sure no one has a prior claim on the property. These are called liens and can occur when a bank, government or even the beneficiary of an estate lays claim to the property.
For example, if the prior owner of a business failed to pay all their taxes, the building might now have a lien on it by the government, but to try and salvage their losses, they offer it at a steep discount to you. Would you be able to figure out what was wrong in time to avoid the purchase? We can.
Ensure A Smooth And Hassle-Free Closing
Until the deed is signed and the transaction closed, nothing is set in stone in real estate. Make sure nothing is left up in the air by having an experienced attorney at your side to review the deal, verify the transaction, and approve your purchase or sale.
While the buyer is usually responsible for paying the attorney closing fees, it is in the interest of both to ensure that it is smooth, efficient and as affordable as possible. These are three values The Cardwell Firm aims to uphold in every real estate closing.
