About South Carolina Real Estate Closings
Real estate is very different from other types of property. Unlike buying or selling a car, there is no paper title that you simply sign on the back and hand over to the new owner.
Instead, to ensure that the new owner has good title to the real estate, a South Carolina real estate attorney must perform a thorough inspection of courthouse records to make sure the seller has clear title to the land and that all parties are aware of any mortgages, easements, liens or other encumbrances that could affect ownership rights.
It is very important to choose an experienced real estate attorney who knows what to look for in the title search process. You also want a lawyer who will conduct a thorough review of all closing documents and take the time to explain what you are signing.
