Title & Closing

Title & Closing


When acquiring real estate, it is essential to ensure that you are acquiring good legal title to the property. Mistakes in deed chains, unsatisfied liens and undiscovered clouds on title can significantly diminish a property's value. Along with an experienced real estate attorney's examination of the legal history of the property, a buyer should purchase title insurance.

Title insurance pays you for certain losses that you may suffer in connection with title defects to your real estate. The price of title insurance is regulated by the District of Columbia and the party responsible for paying for the premium is normally dictated by local custom.  Like all insurance policies, however, there are certain exclusions and limitations that apply which should be carefully considered.  The Firm prides itself in providing professional, courteous and thorough service. The team's special attention to detail, dependability and communication at each stage of the closing process ensure our clients' closings are hassle-free. We work with clients to achieve a smooth and timely closing whether first-time home buyers or sellers, investors or commercial clients.
