What's the process and documents needed to buy a storage unit

Customer Question

what's the process and documents needed to buy a storage unit from an owner in my condo building? i'm also an owner in the same building. also, should the date, name of the title company be established up front? At what point is the deed handed over (prior to making all or any payment) or at closing. must the title company be located in the same governing district/state as the property? thanks

Good morning Jody. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you. Yes, you do want to name the title company because you want the title company to facilitate the closing. The selling party delivers a deed to the title company and the purchasing party delivers the cash (and/or a promissory note and mortgage document if part of the price is to be paid later). Once the title company has everything required from both parties, the title company releases the cash and note to the selling party and records the deed and mortgage document in the real property records of the city/county in which the property is located. That protects both parties. :) Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question.
