RESIDENTIAL

SERVICES

Legal services in typical residential sales include the following:

  • Reviewing or preparing the contract to make sure that the clients' interests are protected.

  • Verifying and explaining tax consequences.

  • Negotiating issues that arise during inspection of the property.

  • Coordinating with lenders to make sure that their requirements are met.

  • Monitoring deadlines for contingencies, mortgage commitments and the like.

  • Reviewing title and survey including title clearance and title insurance.

  • Managing pre-closing preparations including obtaining lien releases, satisfying local requirements, preparing closing documents and closing figures.

  • Reviewing closing figures to make sure that transaction costs are appropriate and reasonable.

The closing of a residential purchase and sale is the culmination of the transaction yet accounts for less than 5% of the work expended in most transactions. 

I have been referring Robin King since 2004 to all of my buyers or sellers.  She is without a doubt the best real estate attorney I have worked with- her knowledge and expertise in the ever-changing world of real estate law is vast and she is ever present in the transaction (even on non-business hours, if needed)  from the moment she first engages with the client until the property has closed. She is a true advocate for her clients and leaves no stone unturned in her role as their attorney.  Robin and I have faced some real challenges in getting through some very difficult attorney reviews, and Robin has risen to the challenge every single time. We work extremely well together- she is my partner in getting the deal done for our client.  Robin is the consummate professional in every sense of the word. She is my go-to attorney for every transaction I deal with, and I highly recommend her.  — Leslie Maguire, Real Estate Broker @ properties
