Looking For Your Own Representation?
The buyer chooses and pays for the title company or law firm to close the sale of your house. That includes:
collecting the purchase price from the buyer and lender
paying off your existing mortgage
paying your real estate broker, termite inspector, and other fees
paying state and local taxes on your behalf
transferring what is left of the purchase proceeds to you
and perhaps more depending upon your specific circumstances
You Choose Who Drafts Your Deed
The deed is the document by which you transfer ownership
to the buyer. Only an attorney can draft a deed in Virginia. The buyer's title company or law firm will likely offer to sell you this service, but you have the right to shop around.
A Virginia attorney will draft your deed and represent you, and only you, during the closing process. Call us to find out about our competitive seller rates.
