Upon the sale of a property, it has to be transferred into the name of the purchaser in the deeds office. This is a very important process because the payment of the purchase price as well as agent’s commission depend on it.
You are entitled to insist that the estate agent enter your choice of attorney in the contract. Contact us before you sign the contract. If we are appointed to attend to the transfer the fee for the advice on the contract will be nominal. It is common that the seller appoints the attorney who is to attend to the transfer although this is not an absolute rule. Buyers often insist that their attorney does the transfer, especially where large transactions are involved and the buyer’s risk is high.
