Fort Wayne Real Estate Attorney Assists with Sales and Closings

Reputable lawyer takes meticulous care with property transactions in Indiana

Every parcel of real estate is a unique asset, so generic legal advice is not sufficient to protect your investment. As Patterson Law LLC in Fort Wayne, you’ll deal with a real estate attorney with ample experience handling residential and commercial real estate transactions across Indiana. We know what questions need to be answered and what answers need to be questioned. We are willing to dig deep to uncover the facts that can make or break your investment. Whether you are buying, selling or leasing, you want to maximize the benefit of the transaction. Sound legal advice that helps you avoid unforced errors is one key to maximizing value. Our firm provides reliable guidance so you can proceed with confidence.

Experienced firm assists with a variety of Fort Wayne real estate transactions

When you buy, sell or lease real estate, it’s important to consult a knowledgeable real estate attorney who has managed similar transactions in the area. We have guided clients in deals involving:

  • Single-family homes
  • Condominiums
  • Multi-unit residential properties
  • Retail properties
  • Industrial properties

We are adept at negotiating real estate contracts for sale and lease. We draft contracts that are specific to the property and address the goals of buyers, sellers, lessors and lessees. We even negotiate with lenders to get the best finance terms possible for those we represent.

Closing attorney provides a full range of services

An experienced closing attorney is vital to any real estate purchase. Among the many tasks we handle for our clients are these:

  • Title clearance — There are many defects that can impact title. Tax liens, mechanics liens, boundary disputes and other problems may lie hidden in misfiled records. A cursory title search is simply not sufficient to secure a buyer’s investment. We know how to dig deeper to uncover and resolve potential problems.
  • Title opinion — Even with the most thorough title search, a buyer should always purchase title insurance. We draft reliable title opinion letters that buyers can present to title insurance providers to facilitate their purchase of coverage.
  • Coordination — There are multiple parties to any real estate transaction, and not all of them are at the table. Property inspectors, surveyors, county tax assessors, insurance providers and in some cases HOAs have input that influences a closing. The closing attorney is the hub for all such communications and must make sure that no details fall through the cracks.
  • Review of documents — The terms of all agreements are negotiated ahead of closing, but last-minute changes are common. Does the document you are signing contain the same terms you agreed to? For example, it’s not unusual for a lender to present a mortgage contract that’s been revised since the last meeting with the buyer. Are there material changes that substantially alter the deal? A closing attorney has to explain any changes, reconcile various documents with one another, and explain the contents of all documents to interested parties.
  • Recording and distribution — A closing attorney must file all necessary documentation to register the sale and distribute proceeds to the appropriate parties.

If you want your real estate deal finalized professionally, choose our firm to manage your closing.
