Understanding The Differences Between A Lawyer And A Title Company
Individuals and businesses that are buying or selling property via a short sale are often faced with the decision of whether they should hire a lawyer, a title company or a real estate agent.
Title companies act as facilitators throughout real estate transactions. The title company puts documents in the correct order, sends the documents to the bank, and waits for approval or denial. Then, the title company alerts the interested parties of the outcome.
Real estate agents are necessary to list the property, facilitate showings, give advice as to fair market value and help draft the contract when an offer is received. However, these agents, much like title companies, can only facilitate a short sale transaction.
An attorney, on the other hand, advocates on behalf of his or her clients throughout the process. Before attorney Shawn Yesner sends documents to the bank, he reviews everything, notifies clients of potential red flags and works with the client to resolve those issues. Once any potential issues are resolved, he submits the paperwork to the bank.
If the bank calls to deny the transaction, attorney Shawn Yesner does not just submit that information to his clients. He negotiates with the bank, advocating on behalf of his clients, to help ensure everything is approved to move forward.
