Buying or selling a home is one of the most impactful financial decisions you will make. Rhode Island gives you the right to choose your own attorney to perform the title examination and to choose your own lender when you purchase or refinance your home. The additional cost of an attorney will be nominal in relation to your total investment and the protection it can afford.
The attorney you select to perform the title examination should be an attorney knowledgeable in the area of residential real estate law. At William C. Maaia and Associates, our attorneys are have handled all types of real estate transactions and are prepared to review legal documents prepared by your real estate broker, such as an Offer to Purchase or the Purchase and Sale Agreement.
Real estate brokers are not attorneys. Your attorney should review any document requiring your signature.
