Title Company Closing Attorney - Derick Smith has closed numerous Real Estate Transactions including Residential and Commercial closings, including refinances and home equity loans on behalf of various title companies. Our firm represents Buyers and Sellers at closing and in many circumstances can also perform the closing for our clients.
Mobile Closing Service - Even if you do not close with my title company, you can have me come to your office or any location after hours to close your transaction for a very reasonable fee. This saves you time from taking valuable time out of your work day to close a transaction. If you have a home equity refinance the law does not allow that type of closing to be performed at a residence or office that is not a law office, lender or title company. However, it can be done at my Law Office after hours. Again, like we stated on the first page of this web site, we strive to provide excellent service. Because of this, much of our business comes from repeat customers and referrals. Contact us today so we can arrange, with our title company or yours, to perform your closing at a location and time convenient to you.
For Sale By Owner - Many owners who attempt to sale their property on their own find themselves in over their head or they are just not sure if they are are doing everything correctly. We have assisted many of the those owners. For residential properties that involve typical transactions, we offer flat fee packages that make having our office involved very affordable.
