The real estate closing process in New Jersey continues to evolve. The new closing forms, the continuing short sale problem, the persistence of difficult inspection issues, the northward creep of “South Jersey,” title company closings, and other developments all require the practitioner to stay current with the changes.
In addition, lawyers are increasingly being drawn into litigation involving unhappy buyers/mortgagors, who sue their sellers and their mortgagees. As if this were not enough, the attorney fees that are charged for these transactions are almost never adequate.
Join attorney William Slover as he reviews the evolution of New Jersey real estate closings and the various considerations attorneys should know, including specific consideration of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.
