When you purchase or sell a house or other real property you will be required to sign numerous documents including the deed, the title insurance policy, promissory note, deed of trust, disclosures and more. These documents define your legal rights – what you own (or don’t), what your liabilities are to others, what obligations other parties have to you, what protections you have from claims of others. Understand what your title insurance covers and, in most cases, what it doesn’t cover. Protect your rights and understand the purpose of each document you sign. Have an attorney either review the documents before closing or attend the closing with you. For assistance with document review for a real estate closing contact Attorney Andrew Bernick at 512-763-5370 or by email at Andrew@BernickLegal.com.
