Representation for Commercial & Residential Real Estate Closings
Closing on a commercial or residential real estate transaction is a major process, regardless of how big or small the property or its purchase price may be. Many steps and a lot of complicated paperwork are involved when it comes to closing on any property, and this can become even more confusing in situations where the financing is more complex–as is often the case in properties with multiple jurisdictions and zoning issues.
We work hard to close the transaction in the most timely and successful manner possible. We assist clients in:
- Commercial and residential transactions
- Buy and sell agreements
- Real estate closings
- Lines of credit
- Commercial leasing
Serving our clients’ needs in the area of real property is an integral part of our practice at the Law Office of Julio E. Portilla, P.C. We take the necessary steps to transfer the ownership of a house or commercial property under New York law. If you are working with a real estate agent, we are available to review your purchase and sale agreement before you sign it. If you are not working with an agent, we will draft the contract ourselves and negotiate on your behalf. We offer guidance throughout the due diligence, financing, and inspection stages of the contract.
- If you are buying, we examine the title to the prospective property and explain any encumbrances or rights you may have with respect to the property. We prepare all the closing figures and adjustments and explain everything to you at the closing, including your loan documents.
- If you are selling, we prepare all the closing figures and adjustments. We draft the deed and conveyance tax statements. We take the necessary steps to insure your mortgage will be paid off and released properly.
Regardless of the real estate closing transaction you are preparing for, the fact remains that it is never a bad idea to hire an attorney to assist you through the entire process. After all, you never know what kinds of road bumps and problems you could run into when undergoing the process of attempting to close a sale, and the last thing you need is to have to scramble to hire an attorney.
