Girardot & LaRose has over 40 years of experience in handling complex title issues, including probate and missing heirs. We strive to close as quickly as possible but always ensure your transaction is completed accurately and professionally.
Our standard residential real estate closing fee is $650.00, with a residential title search fee of $225.00, plus the standard title insurance premiums as set by our title insurance companies, either Chicago or First American.
Girardot & LaRose are agents for two of the largest and most reputable title insurers in the industry: Chicago Title Insurance Company (CTIC) and First American Title Insurance Company (FATCO).
We also handle Quiet Title and Tax Deed issues, including the process of barring the right of redemption and successfully pursuing Quiet Title actions in the Georgia Superior Courts.
As many savvy real estate investors know, investing in tax deeds can be very lucrative, as either they are paid off by the taxpayer, or the tax deed investor can become the owner of the real estate.
Simply purchasing a tax deed does not give an investor a clear “fee simple” ownership interest, however, as the taxpayer has the right to redeem the tax deed for a specified period of time. The tax deed investor must follow specific steps to “bar” the taxpayer’s right of redemption. After the barment process, a “Quiet Title” lawsuit is usually necessary to establish an insurable title in the real estate.
Successful tax deed investors rely upon the advice and guidance of Girardot & LaRose, with years of experience in the barment process and in Quiet Title actions in the Georgia Superior Courts.
We can assist with formation of Limited Liability Companies and other entities, including the provision of operating agreements and registration with the Georgia Secretary of State
Our lawyers have counseled generations of Georgians on estate planning and probate matters. A basic financial planning package, including will, durable power of attorney and advance directive for health care can be provided starting from $450.00. Call us today to discuss your exact needs.
