Document Preperation Only

Doc Prep Only Option:    Under this option our firm (i) prepares the necessary legal documents for a residential transaction, and (ii) performs all necessary closing functions. 

Procedure:    Our services begin upon receipt of your request for documents at least 24 hours prior to closing.  (Doc Order Forms can be found on our "Doc Order Forms" page.  We then complete a thorough review of the title commitment, survey (if applicable), sales contract when applicable, underwriter’s approval, and lender’s lock confirmation.  Loan documents are prepared.  These documents are drawn in your lender's name.

Once the transaction has closed, the closing agent contacts our office for funding authorization. We give that authorization when we are satisfied that all closing conditions have been satisfied.  We instruct the closing agent to forward to us by overnight delivery, the originals of all loan documents executed in connection with the loan which are required by the investor (the “Shipping Documents”).  We organize the file in accordance with the investor’s instructions and submit the original package to the Investor for purchase.    The original Note will be delivered per the instructions of your warehouse bank.

We stand behind all work provided by our firm and carry a $2,000,000.00 Errors and Omissions insurance policy, a copy of which will be provided at your request.

We are very client oriented and the lines of communication are always open.  We take great pride in the services our firm provides.  Whatever your future document and closing needs may be, we are here to help.

We truly appreciate your interest in our firm and look forward to your business in the future.  Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further information or details.

Please contact our office for pricing.
