Crucial Steps: Title Searches and Closings
The Title Search
A property has a history—called a chain of title—that must be searched to determine the current status of the title, the house’s legal description, easements, property taxes due, encumbrances (mortgages or deeds of trust), leases, judgments or any other liens.
If there is a cloud on the title, such as an old loan, then the contract can be cancelled without cost to either party.
A date for the closing is agreed upon by all parties after a firm offer has been accepted. The closing involves four key actions, overseen or conducted by an attorney:
1.The buyer delivers a check for what remains on the purchase price of the house.
2.The seller signs the deed over to the buyer and gives him or her the keys.
3.The lawyer registers the deed with the county or local registry office.
4.The seller receives a check for the proceeds of the sale minus the closing costs and mortgage payments.
