Buying or selling your home is a big life event and can result in complicated contractual issues. You need an experienced attorney on your team to ensure your interests are protected. Our real estate attorney based in Hoboken, NJ and serving Jersey City & Union City is here to help you.
Anytime, but ideally, before you sign your real estate contract. If you know you are close to a sale or purchase, it is a good time to be in touch so we can review the next steps once you have an accepted offer. Stephanie A. Sgambati, PC serves those in the Northern New Jersey area, and our real estate attorney is ready, now, to serve you.
We will talk about what issues and concerns need to be addressed in your contract rider. We will guide you through negotiating inspection issues and ensure everything is on track for your target closing date. We will ensure all contingencies are satisfied, review title documents and prepare closing documents.
Every sale or purchase has unique concerns and circumstances. We can help ensure that your contract protects your interests and addresses the relevant issues. We guide you through the entire process, coordinating all the required elements to get from contract to closing.
Buyers typically do attend the closing, especially if there are loan documents to sign. Sellers generally do not attend the closing and sign their documents in advance.
Title insurance is issued after a review of the chain of ownership and liens on the property. A title insurance policy ensures that you are buying a "clear title." If you are getting a mortgage, your mortgage company will require title insurance.
Absolutely. Please contact us to discuss your circumstances in more detail and we can work with you towards a solution that makes sense for you.
Sellers generally pay their broker's fee (a percentage negotiated at the time of listing), their attorney's fee, the Real Estate Transfer fee (based on the sale price), and some document recording fees.
Buyers generally pay their attorney's fees, various bank fees associated with initiating a mortgage, title search, and insurance fees, closing services fees, funding of escrow with taxes and possibly homeowner's insurance premiums, reimbursement of any prepaid taxes, and some document recording fees.
