Real Estate

Regulations and consumer protection laws effectively eliminated the “simple closing.”  The initial purchase and sales agreement, mortgage financing documentation, and closing proceedings have become more complex and onerous for residential and commercial buyers to handle alone.  Additionally, rapid real estate turnovers (“flipping”) and mortgage foreclosures have given rise to a host of unusual and technical title issues which can affect the ability to buy, sell or finance real estate. It is prudent to engage a real estate attorney to assist with buying, selling, or refinancing property.  At Tellie & Coleman, we serve many clients located in Northeastern Pennsylvania (”NEPA”), near and around the Scranton area, including many NEPA counties, such as, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Wyoming, Susquehanna, Wayne, Pike, Monroe, Bradford, and Sullivan.
