Differentiating inaccurate information to secure a timely closing
A client referred to the real estate practice from the estate planning practice was selling real estate and prior to the transfer, the proposed buyer illegally entered the property to start repairs. Without a timely closing, the client’s property would have been substantially devalued due to the proposed buyer’s actions. The transfer had to occur quickly to reduce risk and potential loss for the client. Amanda worked swiftly to differentiate inaccurate information provided by buyer’s counsel and utilized her resources to determine the best avenues and moved quickly to assure a timely closing. With constant pressure and communications with buyer’s counsel, she was able to complete the sale of the property within a day to resolve the tense situation and reduce risk to the client.
Completing a transfer on a tight deadline
A social services, non-profit corporation was purchasing property that needed to be transferred on a specific date due to deadlines. The timeline was especially tight due to delayed funding from the lender and delayed closing documents from seller’s counsel. Once funding was in place, Amanda traveled to the seller’s counsel (more than an hour and half from our office) to obtain the documents and deliver the documents to our title examiner for recording. She later returned to the seller’s counsel with a check for proceeds. Although Amanda initially felt the timeline of this transaction would be the biggest challenge for her client, an error on the part of the title examiner became their biggest obstacle. Once the title examiner provided her with the erroneous information, Amanda quickly contacted the lead attorney who provided the correct information and then was able to record and complete the transaction. Amanda’s speedy response, attention to detail, tireless efforts, and willingness to do what it takes for the client resulted in the real estate transfer being completed.
