Preparing and reviewing purchase and lease contracts

A home or commercial property purchase is a major financial investment. At The Williams Firm, P.C., we help ensure that purchases and sales of real estate go smoothly. Every real estate transaction begins with a contract. We can draft the purchase and sale agreement for you, or review your contract if it was prepared by a realtor to ensure that the terms are clear and your interests are protected.

Performing title searches and clearings

When you are buying a home or business property, you want to be sure that the seller has the right to sell it and that there are no encumbrances on the title that could prevent you from finalizing the sale or transferring the property in the future. An encumbrance may be a lien or other claim another party has on the property. Our law firm works to clear title encumbrances when needed.

Advising clients throughout closing process

The closing is the all-important final step in your property purchase or sale. If you are buying, you will get the keys to your new home or other property at the closing. If you are the seller, you will get payment. If something goes wrong during closing, it can delay or even end the real estate transaction altogether. We aim to ensure that the paperwork is in order before you sign it and address any concerns you may have about documents or the closing process.

Drafting and executing Deeds

A deed is a written instrument that conveys title to real property. It differs from an earnest money contract, a note, and a deed of trust. While there is no standard form for deeds, deeds in Texas must include the intent to convey property, the legal description of the property, and a signature and acknowledgement of the grantor to be valid. Deeds need not be recorded to be valid.

The above being said, not all deeds are created equally. When a grantor wishes to accomplish specific objectives or limit liability, the type of deed and the careful wording in the deed by a competent real estate attorney are critical. 

Representing clients in a variety of property disputes

Where high-dollar real estate is concerned, legal disputes are not uncommon. Property buyers or sellers may not meet their contractual obligations, conflicts may arise between landlords and tenants related to lease agreements or a lawsuit may need to be brought if a boundary or easement dispute arises. No matter what legal problem you encounter related to your real estate endeavor, we are highly experienced litigators who will work deftly to try and beneficially resolve your issue.
