Handling Closings And Representing Buyers, Sellers And Property Owners In All Transactional Real Estate Matters

At the Law Office of Kimberly A. Abrams & Associates, P.A., and its subsidiary title company, Evolution Title & Closing Services, LLC, in Hollywood – Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we focus entirely on transactional real estate law, meaning real estate purchase/sale closings, buyer representations at closings, seller representations at closings and other transactional matters such as the drafting of conveyance deeds.

For over 30 years we have provided property owners, buyers, sellers, borrowers and lenders/investors with legal advice, representation and closing services in matters ranging from the purchase/sale of residential and commercial property, for sale by owner (FSBO) transactions, refinance transactions, 1031 exchange transactions, to the preparation and recording of conveyance deeds, etc.

Residential And Commercial Real Estate Closings: From the drafting of the contract, ordering of inspections, examination of title and lien search reports and surveys, coordinating with lenders in anticipation of closing and the preparation of closing documents to the actual closing and the writing of the title insurance, we handle all aspects of a real estate transaction.  At the Law Office of Kimberly A. Abrams & Associates, P.A., and its subsidiary title company, Evolution Title & Closing Services, LLC, our clients receive the dual benefit of working with both a title company and a law office, as we can be both the Closing Agent and legally represent you in your purchase and/or sale; one office, one price, two services.

For Sale By Owner (FSBO) Transactions: If properly represented by a transactional real estate attorney, selling your property without a real estate agent can be extremely cost effective.  However, the key to avoiding costly pitfalls in these types of transactions is to retain an experienced legal professional to guide you through all of the complex aspects of your real estate transaction so that your interests are fully protected.

Representation of Buyers: The buying of real estate is one of the most expensive and significant purchases one will ever make. Kimberly A. Abrams, Esq., has been protecting buyers of real estate for over 30 years, working tirelessly to ensure that her clients receive the best possible terms and that the property being purchased is clear of all title defects.

Representation of Sellers: When selling such a significant asset as real estate, it is imperative that the seller be represented by a knowledgeable and experienced transactional real estate attorney. If you retain Kimberly A. Abrams, Esq., she will not only negotiate the best possible terms to maximize your profit, she will also ensure that you don’t pay any fees/costs that you are not contractually obligated to pay and that you don’t sign any documents containing terms, representations, assurances, warranties, etc., that are not contractually required by the terms of your purchase and sale agreement.

Drafting Real Estate Documents: Real estate contracts, closing documents and conveyance documents are complex legal writings and should only be drafted by a knowledgeable transactional real estate attorney. From contracts to closing documents to conveyance deeds, Kimberly A. Abrams, Esq., will apply her insight and experience to the preparation of your real estate documents so that when you sign your documents, you do so with confidence and the knowledge that your interests are being fully protected.

Underwriting Services/Title Insurance: One of the most important aspects of a closing for the buyer of real property is the writing of the title insurance. Title insurance protects the buyer and/or lender from financial loss due to any defects in the title to the property stemming from either the chain of ownership or a claimed interest in the property as the result of an unsatisfied mortgage, judgment or claim of lien, etc.  The Law Office of Kimberly A. Abrams & Associates, P.A., and its subsidiary title company, Evolution Title & Closing Services, LLC, provides title insurance underwriting services through Old Republic National Title Insurance Company. Old Republic National Title is one of the oldest and largest national title insurance underwriters and it consistently earns honors as one of the highest rated title insurers in the United States by Standard & Poor’s, Duff & Phelps, Moody’s, A.M. Best, LACE Financial Corporation and Demotech, Inc.

Deeds: Adding or deleting people or entities from the title to a property is one of the most sought-after services that we offer. There are many types of deeds (General Warranty Deeds, Special Warranty Deeds, Quitclaim Deeds, Traditional Life Estate Deeds, and Enhanced Life Estate Deeds also known as Ladybird Deeds), and they all differ considerably in their purpose, what they include and what they are for.  As an experienced transactional real estate attorney, Kimberly A. Abrams, Esq., can guide you in identifying which type of deed best serves your needs and then preparing and recording your deed in the Public Records of the County where the property is located.
