Real Estate Attorney

You are here: Home / Real Estate Practice Areas / Real Estate Attorney

Whether you’re buying or selling a house or property, it will involve closing in some capacity. And there’s a lot to know about

closing – from how to do it, to how to recognize if you’re getting a good deal – that mandates the presence of a real estate

attorney in Chicago.

What Happens During A Real Estate Closing

What Happens During A Real Estate Closing

Before the closing, your real estate attorney Chicago should accompany you through the final walk through of the home or property, even

though it’s not technically required, so they can make sure everything’s in order and make sure there are no glaring problems.

The long and the short of real estate closings is that the buyer gives the seller their money and in exchange, the seller gives either a deed, in

the case of sales, or a proprietary lease, for rentals. Two closings may be happening simultaneously – the closing of the sale and, potentially,

the closing of the buyer’s loan for the mortgage.

The closing can take place at a variety of locations – the office of the managing agent, one of the attorney’s offices, one of the broker’s offices,

or some sort of official office that can record the sale. At the time of the closing, both the buyer and the seller should be present, along with

their real estate attorney in Chicago and potentially their real estate agent, a closing rep and potentially a representative from the mortgage

company.

There are also some fine points of insurance that may need to be addressed, so make sure to address the details with your real estate

attorney Chicago.

What You’ll Need During The Closing

What You’ll Need During The Closing

Buyers need to bring the pre-arranged funds at the time of closing, which should be detailed in your purchase application, along with the

board package and also your sales contract. In terms of a lease, you’ll need to pay the move-in fee, your real estate attorney fees, filing fees,

bank fees, and potentially a flip tax and perhaps a maintenance adjustment and appraisal. When financing, you’ll have to pay the loan

origination and UCC-1 filing fee, as well as getting a recognition agreement and perhaps a pre-paid mortgage interest rate.

What Is A Flip Tax?

What Is A Flip Tax?

Flip taxes, also called transfer taxes, are a way of increasing the financial reserves without maintenance assessments or increases.

The real estate attorneys will have an itemized closing statement that breaks down the costs paid by the buyer and the seller, respectively, as

well as the final dividend after paying their broker and real estate attorney in Chicago. It will list the debits and credits contained in the

transaction, which need to be paid in certified checks.

The transfer tax also needs to be paid at this time, usually by the seller. If someone is buying an apartment for over a million dollars, a

mansion tax may be applied, which is usually equal to 1% of the purchase price. Given the increasing prices of real estate, this is growing

more and more prevalent.

Closings can take a prohibitively long time, at the best of times, so make sure to go over as many of the finer points with your real estate

attorney Chicago ahead of time. You’ll have to sign the pertinent paperwork and bring the certified checks.

Lastly, the real estate attorneys in Chicago will record the deed and mortgage in the public records.
