Experienced Real Estate Attorneys

In addition to estate planning and probate administration, our firm also practices in real estate. We routinely handle complex real estate matters, including:

  • Real estate transfers — buying/selling, renting/leases
  • Title work from banking institutions and realtors
  • Real estate closings, residential and other
  • Title insurance
  • Title search and examination

Outstanding Staff, Comprehensive Title Searches

We cannot say enough about the staff at Stephen K. Snavely Co., L.P.A. With our guidance, our staff does an excellent job at title work. When you leave our office, you can feel confident in our work and confident in your property title. This may seem like common sense, but you would be surprised at how many properties our lawyers see with title issues before we fix them.

Our thorough work is critical — if you are spending a lot of money buying property, you want to be sure that you have clear title. We can find problems that occurred two grantors back, or a problem with notarization, or an error in transfer as part of a divorce. If there is an issue, we will find it and we will fix it so you can have peace of mind in your real estate transaction.

Avoid Real Estate Litigation

Quiet title actions, or litigation to clear title, are expensive and can cost $3,000 and more. Whatever the issue, we will work to resolve the matter outside of court. In the past we have found relatives to sign off on title, spouses to transfer property properly, or discovered that the title was cleared simply by the passage of time. But if we are unable to clear title with these exhaustive efforts, you can be certain we will pursue litigation if necessary so you can avoid issues in the future.
