Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
You should just look for a local title company here.You need to agree to a price and who pays closing costs, etc.The title company lawyer can draw up the sales contract and then prepare the closing documents.If a lender is involved for the daughter the title company can also act as escrow and closing officer and deal with lender so that closing can be made.
If you are going to finance this I suggest you make the note non negotiable.That way medicaid would not force you to sell it if you had to go on program.You can will the daughter the note and she owns the house free and clear upon your death.
The title company can prepare everything a realtor is an unnecessary expense.You could have it appraised if you choose or sell it for say tax assessor value.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Good luck on the closing.
Title companies for you.
I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
