Functions of a Massachusetts Real Estate Lawyer

One of the Boston real estate lawyer’s primary function is to ensure that ’good title” to the property is being transferred. This involves title research wherein the lawyer will examine probate records, surveys, plats, and other legal documents. If there are no problem in the chain of title, the lawyer will issue a title insurance policy, guaranteeing a proper title transfer. This “Lender’s Policy,” or “Mortgagee Policy”, is required by the mortgage lender. An owner’s policy can be purchased at the same time as the closing, which will protect your interest in the property. Conversely, if problems with the title exist, your closing attorney will attempt to correct the errors. Should problems develop during the title examination, the lawyer will contact the involved parties as soon as possible, so as to avoid any delay in the scheduled closing date.

The second function of a Boston real estate lawyer is to make sure that the client understand the closing transactions completely. Any questions regarding the closing documents can be referred to the lawyer, or his closing staff.
