Seddiq Law Firm knows what’s involved with real estate transaction whether you are buying or selling a residential or commercial property. Documents (contracts, deeds, title searches, environmental studies, inspection reports, appraisal reports, loan documents) and parties (real estate agents, brokers, mortgage services and loan processors, lender, permits, title insurance, permits, closing and settlements) and the list goes on. And these documents you sign are critical to your real estate transaction and could have negative impact on the deal you make in the future. It is, therefore, critically important to understand the legal jargon and other terms in plain English for two key reasons: 1) understanding what you are signing will enable you to negotiate better terms for your transactions; and 2) potentially avoiding problems in the future and the possibility of litigation.

I am also a small business owner, so I know how much hard work and money go into the business. And I also understand small businesses cannot afford to hire lawyers as in house counsel or paying them by the hour. This is why I offer various monthly flat fee packages suited to the needs of each small business. These could include all or some of the following services. Or after I learn more about your goal, business, and needs, we can make a monthly plan tailored to your specific business. In other words, through this plane, Seddiq Law Firm will be there whenever you need its services.

Legal Answers
Q. Is an unrecorded survey valid for a new owner when the purchase agreement used the original deed and description?
A: I assume the subject property is in Virginia, if so, then several issues are not clear. The two deeds were not changed. Not sure which deeds you are referring to. The person who sold it to you and the neighbor, I presume. Also, it appears you are saying the deed(s) describe line boundaries. Or the seller deed and yours. At any rate, encroachments are not necessarily revealed in title search unless a survey is done. I assume you did not get owner's title insurance because you would have seen a request to conduct a survey or waive coverage. But, I hope you had the seller sign an affidavit regarding encroachment and other title related matters unless this was a cash "as-is" deal. I recommend you seek a lawyer to review all the documents then give you an advice. This is not a legal advice and no attorney-client relationship is established.
Q. I need to know specific closing information if I'm buying a house in Virginia from out of state
A: I agree with my colleagues' answers above. I assume (since it is a cash transaction) that you most likely are or purchased it for investment which you may want to flip or receive passive income. And if you purchased a distressed property, a lawyer can also counsel on the best route and proper contract, assignment and title insurance documents.
Q. How do you get rid of an agent to a LLC who objects to the original purpose?
A: I suggest you talk to a lawyer and show the documents to determine the relationship of the agent (assuming you mean registered agent) with members and the LLC.
