Q: Any advice when sending a contract to you?

  • Fill in all the blank spaces, using N/A where applicable.
  • Fill in the legal description if possible. On new constructions, a lot number and subdivision name are always necessary. Please do not forget the county.
  • If the seller’s name and the name of the record title-holder differ, indicate that on the contract. If you have access to documents that will clarify or resolve the discrepancy, provide them with the contract.
  • If the contract is extended, be sure to have all parties sign an addendum to prevent the contract from expiring. Provide a signed copy of the extension as soon as possible.
  • Be sure to notify us of your commission percentage or amount.
  • Have all parties sign the contract and initial any changes. Print the names of all parties.
  • If you are the Listing Agent, provide information on any mortgages (including Lenders' names and account numbers), homeowners' association information, sellers’ phone numbers, and social security numbers.
  • If you are the Selling Agent, provide borrowers’ phone numbers and information on lender and homeowner’s insurance if available.

The purpose of a title search is not only to tell us who holds title to the property but also to reveal all matters affecting the title. For example:

  • Outstanding mortgages
  • Judgments
  • Federal and State Tax Liens
  • City and County taxes
  • Unreleased mortgages
  • Contractor Liens
  • HOA Liens
