Our Services

In addition to two attorneys who advise clients on legal matters and conduct the closing ceremonies, our supporting staff assists with the facilitation of intake, title, escrow, and settlement for residential real estate closings.

If you are purchasing real property without the representation of an agent, contact our attorneys to prepare a contract, review material terms, and sign the agreement with all parties. We welcome questions relating to your purchase of residential real estate in the state of North Carolina.

Please submit your signed contract or inquiries to our team to get started today:


Prompt completion and return of the engagement letter ensures our ability to order your survey, confirm pertinent details, and avoid a delay in closing.

What is Title Insurance?

In North Carolina, mortgage lenders require borrowers to obtain a lender’s policy of title insurance, based on the attorney’s opinion that the loan is free from liens and encumbrances. This is paid as a one-time premium based on the sale price or loan amount.

Importance of Surveys

We recommend every purchaser obtain a survey of the property during the due diligence period. Most importantly, an experienced surveyor’s map and report will indicate any unacceptable encroachments which may be resolved prior to closing. A survey revealing defects should allow a buyer under contract to require the seller to cure any matters as a condition of the purchase.

The average survey cost is between $650 and $900 depending on several variables including the acreage of land, visibility of prior markers, topographic abnormalities, and surrounding development. If you would like our office to order your survey, please ensure the Survey Authorization form is completed and returned promptly.
