Facilitating Real Estate Transactions

Real estate transactions are large financial undertakings. There are many moving pieces and for many people, the process can be overwhelming. At O'Connell & O'Connell, our goal is to complete your residential or commercial real estate transaction in the most efficient manner possible.

Attorney Joseph O'Connell facilitates every stage of the transaction process, including:

  • Drafting purchase and sale agreements
  • Drafting profit-sharing plans
  • Facilitating finance agreements with lenders
  • Performing title examinations
  • Clearing title defects
  • Representation during commercial and residential property closings
  • Facilitating title insurance

Title Insurance

Title insurance acts as a safety net, protecting a buyer and lender against financial loss should an unknown title defect appear in the future. Many lenders require borrowers to purchase title insurance and task borrowers with finding a title insurance agent to issue the policy.

Consulting with a lawyer who is experienced in title insurance issues can help ensure your interests are protected.

As a title insurance agent and a lawyer, Joseph O'Connell is able to provide full-service real estate transaction services to our clients. In addition to the legal documentation involved in the transaction, Mr. O'Connell is able to issue policies on behalf of insurers. This service helps streamline the transaction process and reduce excess time and costs.
