JACK LAPOMARDO VS. OTHER REAL ESTATE ATTYS?
Since 2004 to present the majority of my practice has been in Real Estate. I began my career doing simple title work and recording. Over the years that list of experience has grown significantly to include residential refinances, purchases and sales; commercial refinances, purchases and sales (including a 10 million dollar multifaceted transaction); boundary disputes, realty trusts, ownership partitions, title issues, “short sale” transactions and more.
IN HOUSE TITLE EXAMINATION:
In almost every transaction I perform the title examination myself. This means if there is a rush to close, I can get the title done immediately instead of waiting for a title company to finish the examination on their time. Also, I am well versed on how to clear up title issues. It is not out of the ordinary for me to receive a phone call from another attorney asking for help on how to resolve a title issue. Title issues can delay real estate transactions for months or even years, an experienced attorney who is familiar and comfortable with title exams can often resolve these issues much quicker. Why take a chance with an attorney not well versed in real estate titles?
If a house is valued at less than the amount owed on the mortgage the bank will sometimes accept a final payment for less than what is owed, i.e. “short” money. I can recommend experienced professionals that I utilize whenever possible, helping to stream line what is often a long drawn out process.
MA & CT:
I am licensed to practice in Massachusetts and Connecticut and have conducted a large number of transactions in both states. Also, I practice in the central and western parts of both states. Not only do the two states have different rules but each part of the state has different customs. It is very important to have an attorney who is familiar with these distinctions; otherwise he or she may end up costing you time and money on your closing.
