TITLE OPINION LETTERS
Our attorneys regularly provide opinions as to real estate title. These letters may be used by lenders, municipalities, county commissions, companies, and corporations that are processing loans, changes in ownership, or replatting. We are experienced in title opinion letters for subdivisions, commercial properties, and individual homeowners.
NOTE AND MORTGAGE DRAFTING
Lenders may contact our office if your transaction requires that a note and/or mortgage be drafted for a closing on real property. Title insurance is available for lenders through our affiliate, Paulus Title, LLC. Please contact Paulus Title at 256-776-7704, for more information on our affiliate title company.
Our office can provide you with a will to direct your personal representative on how to distribute your assets. Wills also direct the probate court as to who should care for your minor children and how much of your estate your surviving spouse and surviving children should inherit. Without a will, a deceased person's assets are distributed according to the Alabama Intestacy Laws. Often, these distribution laws are not compliant with what the deceased would have desired.
POWER OF ATTORNEY
Often powers of attorney are used in real estate transactions if the principal is unable to attend closing. For powers of attorney to be used in a real estate transaction, they need to be approved by the title insurer and the lender providing financing on the transaction.
ADVANCE HEALTHCARE DIRECTIVES
Advise medical personnel and family members of a person's wishes if that person were to be medically incapacitated and on life giving support. Our office can assist you in deciding how to handle your affairs and medical decisions if you become incapacitated.
