In South Carolina, attorneys are tasked with closing Real Estate transactions. Not only will your Closing Attorney prepare the paperwork you sign at closing (such as the Deed, Closing or HUD Statement, and Disclosures), they also coordinate the payoff of your existing mortgage with your Lender. Your Closing Attorney will handle most aspects of your closing, once you have gone under contract with a Buyer on a property. Seller’s should expect to pay certain fees associated with the closing, which will be disclosed by your Closing Attorney. There are many qualified Closing Attorneys in the Tri County area, however here are a few experienced attorneys that we’ve worked with here at Pratt & Co.
A great way to eliminate any potential surprises once your home is under contract, and the Buyer is performing inspections, is to have a Home Inspection done prior to listing your home for sale. Not only will this give you the opportunity to make any needed repairs, you also have valuable information about your home to provide potential Buyers. Pratt & Co. Inc. has worked with a number of different Home Inspectors, and we’d like to share a few for your convenience.
In addition to protecting your home from termites and the severe damage they can cause, most loan programs will require that your home pass a Termite Inspection (also referred to as a CL-100 report). Termite Inspectors are licensed to perform an assessment of not only active, but inactive termite activity, and damages at a home. They also assess the moisture levels in crawl space areas of homes to help eliminate the possibility of damage. It is typically negotiated in the Purchase Agreement as to which party (the Buyer or the Seller) will pay for, and order the Termite Letter. However, being proactive and ordering a Termite Letter prior to listing your home for sale is a great way to avoid any potential surprises, and provide potential Buyers security in their purchase.
