What Happens During A Real Estate Closing In South Carolina?
The closing process is the part of the transaction where ownership of the property is transferred from the seller to the buyer. In South Carolina, one lawyer typically conducts the closing for both the buyer and the seller. After the closing, the seller will receive payment, and the buyer will have the legal right to possess the property.
Experienced Attorneys Working For You And Your Best Interests
While you are looking forward to the excitement of moving into your new home, we will take all the legal steps necessary to ensure that your real estate transaction will close smoothly. For example, your closing attorney will:
Find and resolve title issues (such as liens, lawsuit judgments, unpaid real estate taxes and outstanding mortgages) to ensure the seller can provide clear title to the buyer
Notify buyers of easements and right-of-ways that give another person the right to use your property (for example, to travel across your property to get to their property)
Explain each of the documents that you are asked to sign, including the new TRID, the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure form, which came into effect on Oct. 3, 2015
Collect all payments, pay the real estate agent, pay all taxes and fees, and pay the balance to the seller
Throughout the transaction, you will have a direct line to your closing attorney who will answer all of your questions. We also offer closing options for remote sellers and buyers.
