Lenders & Servicers: Our team’s experience in the default servicing industry allows us to close high volume files with speed and efficiency. Our closing fee includes ordering, reviewing and clearing title as well as preparing all required closing documents (i.e., deed, transfer tax declaration, affidavit of title, bill of sale, and ALTA exceptions). For clients interested in these services for properties in the remaining 49 States, please contact our affiliate and national closing company, In Rem REO Services, Inc.
Investors: Many of our investor clients have specific requirements for the properties they buy and sell. For investors purchasing rental properties, we assist in reviewing HOA documents for rental provisions and receive written confirmation of same from the association. Our team also tracks and maintains short sale contracts for investors choosing this method of acquisition. For investors purchasing at auction, we offer abbreviated title searches to advise what liens and tax obligations may be present as well as offer municipal compliance and deed recording services. Additionally, when our clients order title through our firm, the relationships we have perfected with title vendors allow closings to occur within days of contract acceptance.
Homeowners: Our attorneys offer a hands-on approach to walking our clients through the home buying or home selling process. We often work with First Time Home Buyers who need additional guidance understanding the nuances of a real estate closing and loan requirements. We also assist For Sale By Owner clients to ensure they have met all disclosure requirements and understand their obligations when selling their home.
Using Illinois property and foreclosure laws, we cure title defects in their entirety, rather than cause our clients to incur charges for paying off old liens and judgments.
We regularly resolve the following title defects:
- Breaks in the chain of title
- Incorrect vestings
- Prior judgments and liens
- Improperly recorded documents (i.e., wrong county, wrong PIN)
- Unrecorded mortgages and other security instruments
- Incorrect legal descriptions
- Conflicting lien positions
