Surface Title Examination

Edmond Surface Tile Examination Attorneys

Assisting Oklahoma Clients in Real Estate Transactions

In Oklahoma, a typical real estate transaction is facilitated by a title and/or closing company that is chosen by the parties. As part of this transaction, an attorney will examine a certified abstract of title and render an attorney’s Title Opinion which identifies the surface owners of the property and any lienholders or other parties that might be encumbering or clouding title. The buyer and lender to a transaction may each opt to purchase a policy of title insurance based on that attorney's opinion. In other cases, parties will forego title insurance and rely only on that Attorney’s Opinion. Whether you are a lender, buyer, investor, or title insurance agent, you want to rely on title attorneys with experience you can trust.

Our Edmond surface title examination lawyers at Gossen and Schaller, PLLC have devoted much of their experience and resources to these types of transactions. Attorneys Ryan Schaller and Alee Gossen are equipped to handle surface title examinations for insurers, lenders, and purchasers, and their prompt, efficient, and accurate services have made their services known throughout Oklahoma.
