Tallahassee Real Estate Lawyer
In the state of Florida, title insurance can be issued by a practicing attorney. While the costs are typically the same for both attorneys, and title companies, having a lawyer to look over all documents can greatly benefit your closing process. By law, the title company is highly regulated, and limited to the amount of assistance they can provide a homebuyer or business owner. On top of that, if personal property is included in the transaction, the company will not be able to prepare a bill of sale. Most importantly, a title company representative cannot provide extensive legal advice or guidance.
When you retain a Tallahassee real estate lawyer from our Firm, you can rest assured that we will provide guidance so that you may close the deal in a quick, and efficient manner, saving you time, and money.

Why Do I Need Title Insurance?
Property purchases are important decisions, which is why having the proper protection is crucial. Many business owners, and home owners regret not having insurance on their investment, especially with such a high price tag.
It is helpful for an attorney to perform a title search, which includes searching:
- Court Records
- Property Indexes
- Name Indexes
This allows your lawyer to determine what the current owner has the right to sell you, avoiding any future litigation matters. Title insurance is designed to protect you against fraud, legal confusion, or clerical errors. It will also protect you from any historical claims on your property, meaning that you as a property owner cannot be held liable for any hidden restrictions against the property. Any claims made against your property will be defended by the title insurance company attorneys-unless claims are proven valid-which will typically lead to reimbursement. Let our skilled real estate attorneys look over your title insurance, and closing documents.
