Real Estate Transactions and Contracts
For more than two decades, Phillips & Angley has handled countless business and individual real estate transactions. We are equally experienced at overseeing the details of routine sales of single-family homes, probate-related transfers, sales of undeveloped parcels of land, transfers of land with defective title, encumbrances, or other issues, and complex business land transactions.
From drafting offers to purchase, purchase and sales agreements, title insurance policies and resolving title disputes, to handling the final closing of sale, our attorneys regularly assist buyers and sellers alike. Our office also offers title insurance policies (underwritten by First American Title Insurance Company). We routinely draft governing documents for condominium and homeowners associations and prepare instruments for real estate holding entities such as trusts and limited liability companies.
