If I am considering purchasing residential or commercial real estate, should I consult your office prior to executing the agreement of sale?

We advise all clients to immediately contact Casale & Bonner, P.C., to review the Agreement of Sale. We will make sure you understand the terms of the Agreement, review the inspections to be ordered and determine any special contingencies in order to finalize your purchase.

Why should I choose Casale & Bonner, P.C., for my closing over a settlement agent?

Casale & Bonner, P.C., will provide you with a licensed attorney who will advise you of your legal rights and issue title insurance from their reputable title insurance company. Settlement agents can provide title insurance, but cannot provide legal advice or solve legal problems that may arise at the closing table.

Is it true that my fees and costs will be more expensive if I use Casale & Bonner, P.C., rather than a settlement agent?

No. Title insurance issued by Casale & Bonner, P.C., will be at the same all-inclusive premium as that issued by a settlement agent. Title insurance is based upon a percentage of the amount you are borrowing or a percentage of your purchase price. Casale & Bonner, P.C., would have no additional fees unless issues arise requiring additional legal advice or documentation required by your lender.

What about commercial real estate?

Attorneys at Casale & Bonner, P.C., have both personal as well as professional experience with respect to all aspects of commercial real estate from planning and development to financing and technical title insurance issues. Be certain to inquire as to your real estate counsel's commercial experience since it is an area of the law that can be completely different from purchasing your residence.
