A title review is a must to determine your rights and what you are purchasing, and to find out the rights of others. The title refers to the transferrable rights of the seller and it is necessary to check whether he has the required rights. The title review also uncovers any claims against the property through a title search.
The title review provides important information such as past and current ownership, and existence of claims, liens, easements and encumbrances. After we have verified the factors, we conduct a professional survey of your property to ensure everything is in order. We will confirm all property modifications and improvements, lot size, soil condition, access ways, rights of ways, boundary lines and more.
We can also contract with a title insurance company so that you can save yourself from unexpected financial losses as a result of title discrepancies.
Property Codes and Zoning
We will verify if the property you plan to purchase meets the current zoning regulations. We can arrange zoning certificates from the local planning office to ensure the current and anticipated use of the property is in compliance with land use classifications and zoning requirement.
For new buildings, we analyze the certificate of occupancy to find out if the property complies with applicable codes. We also verify tax certificates to assess the accurate valuation of the property to help you negotiate the deal. The verification also uncovers any pending tax payments you need to attend to.
Our zoning experts will help you determine if the property is compliant to codes and zoning so that you can take an informed decision. We also make you aware of zoning implications in case you plan further development, alteration or expansion. Our team will keep you abreast of the zoning requirements and relay any changes that might impact your property for the time you want to hold it.
