Surface Title Examination

Edmond Surface Title Examination Attorney

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 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 a title attorney with experience you can trust.

Our Edmond surface title examination lawyer at Gossen and Schaller, PLLC has devoted much of his legal career to focusing on these types of transactions. Attorney Ryan Schaller is equipped to handle surface title examinations for insurers, lenders, and purchasers, and his prompt, efficient, and accurate services have made his services known throughout Oklahoma.

If you require an attorney’s opinion, hire a team you can trust by calling (405) 267-9921 or contacting us online.
