Guidance Throughout Residential Real Estate Transactions

Buying or selling a home is possibly the most significant financial transaction that you will make in your lifetime. In either situation, you have a lot to lose. To protect your investment, partner with a knowledgeable real estate attorney who can anticipate and avoid costly pitfalls.

This is where we come in. We are Holman Kent LLC. A law firm local to the Des Moines metro area, we provide knowledgeable guidance regarding the purchase and sale of residential real estate.

The Importance Of A Title Search

One of the most important tasks for your lawyer is performing a title search. A title search will:

  • Determine whether the sellers are in fact the homeowners
  • Uncover any easements or liens
  • Confirm the property identifier number

Our attorneys have extensive experience with title searches, title insurance and the many issues that may arise during the title search process.

Why Should You Hire A Real Estate Attorney?

It is possible to handle a real estate transaction on your own, but it is not always wise. Many people encounter a legal hurdle or make errors that consume more time and money than the costs of hiring a lawyer.

An attorney can also help you prevent and resolve real estate disputes. If a dispute proceeds to trial, you will need to hire representation. Michael Kent, one of the founders of Holman Kent LLC, is an experienced real estate attorney and litigator. He can assist you with every aspect of a transaction as well as any disputes or litigation that arises.

Our attorneys can represent you with other legal issues that often intersect with real estate transactions, such as updating your estate plan.
