Deed/Title Issues

Advocating for Real Estate Clients

While Pennsylvania doesn’t require you to hire an attorney to handle real estate transactions, partnering with a real estate attorney does offer advantages over working with a title company. Sometimes, issues come up when you’re buying or selling property — and if they aren’t resolved, those issues become a liability.

Our real estate attorneys represent you throughout your entire transaction. If any issues arise with the deed or title, our teams will resolve them. Many of those issues are quite common and include:

  • Boundary disputes
  • Easements
  • Encumbrances
  • Filing errors
  • Gaps in the ownership chain
  • Improper legal descriptions
  • Inaccurate addresses in the sales contract
  • Liens
  • Need to include addenda
  • Non-standard forms
  • Previous ownership claims

    Have questions? Need to speak to someone about your legal needs? We're here to help.
