Online Real Estate Transactions

As more consumers turn to online resources to manage their affairs at this time, the legal industry has also had to evolve to meet the changing realities. Our real estate attorneys at The Law Office of James L. Marmon also embrace this change and continue to offer real-time advice on real estate transactions through remote tools.

The Law Office of James L. Marmon has been providing seamless service for clients for over twenty years. We have provided exceptional estate planning, real estate, elder law, and general practice legal services during this time.

However, with the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic and current shelter-in-place orders, people were unable to access these services in-person at our office. Being a committed legal advocate, attorney James L. Marmon pivoted to offer these services through an online medium that is both safe and effective.

When you use our online real estate transactions service, you have the benefit of strategic legal advice from an experienced professional. All you need do is engage with us via our teleconference channel and have your real estate transaction reviewed by our skilled attorneys.

We have structured our online real estate transactions service to give you the benefit of all our services in this practice area while accounting for the challenges of this period. Here are some of the services that will be available to you, amongst others.

  • Review of documents:We will help you review all documents drawn up by your realtor and ensure that there are no legal issues – either currently or in the future.

  • Conducting necessary searches and providing consultation on specific matters: Carrying out due diligence in real estate transactions is of paramount importance. While we may not be able to meet with you face-to-face, we will still provide this service and give you feedback via our online platforms. You can conveniently have consultations with us on matters of title search, property tax information, and others.
  • Preparing and signing of documents: We will ensure that all documents are properly drafted and that any issues that may arise are corrected. Whether you are a seller or a buyer, we will ensure that the conditions of the transaction are fair to you and that they are met.

When going into a real estate transaction, it is important to have a general idea of what to expect whether as a buyer or seller. This includes:

  • Agreement terms: If you are the seller in a real estate transaction, the buyer must come with an offer to buy.
  • Escrow: When you have agreed on a price, you open an escrow account for the funds and contracts involved in the transaction.
  • Inspections: After you have agreed on the contract, you schedule an inspection. This will cover insect infestation, roof quality, appliances, heating, and cooling systems.
