Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by JustAnswer and you are under no obligation to accept.

.

Is the closing being done at a bank or attorney's office?

.

Did you actually agree to pay for a title search and registration and license or are they just asking for you to do so?

.

.

thanks

Barrister
