About Atlanta Real Estate Closing Attorneys

In Georgia, real estate attorneys conduct all closings and must perform dozens of duties before a real estate transaction can be finalized. This is why choosing a great attorney is very important.

Attorneys charge fees to cover the costs of researching the chain of title, preparing closing documents, performing the closing, and recording the transaction with the county. The cost for a standard residential closing varies, but is typically between $400-$800. This may not include fees for the title search, title insurance, recording fees, transfer fees, taxes, bank charges, etc.

One of the most shocking things that a first time homeowner will experience is the realization that they can no longer call the landlord when something breaks or goes wrong. As a homeowner, if there is a problem, you have to fix it. Luckily, I’ve compiled a list of the top tools that a first time homeowner will undoubtedly need.
