Run title

AML will run a title report that will pull any judgments, liens, deeds, mortgages, and any encumbrances on the property that are recorded in the official records. AML will pull municipal and county liens, outstanding taxes, and order estoppel letters for Homeowner Associations and Condominium Owner Associations, if applicable. A payoff will be requested if the seller has an existing mortgage on the property.

Closing occurs

The buyer wires the funds in advance of the actual closing date to ensure the funds clear prior to disbursement to the seller. The buyer executes the Promissory Note and Mortgage, and other loan documents. The Seller executes the Deed. AML runs a gap title search for any judgments, liens, taxes, and assessments that may have attached to the property after the initial title search was run. If all is clear, the funds will be disbursed and the keys to the property will be tendered to the new buyers. AML will record the Mortgage, Deed, and ensure the prior mortgage, if any, is released.

AML handles Short Sale transactions and Short Payoff Negotiations for buyers and sellers. Ashland Medley Law represents investors in commercial and residential mortgage foreclosures and has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in handling these transactions. A short sale is when the property’s contract price is less than what is owed on the existing mortgage on the property. Unfortunately, having a property that is “under water” is not uncommon in today’s market. Lenders are often willing to accept a purchase price that is less than what is owed on the existing mortgage.
