Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far? Has any paperwork been prepared or filed?

Hi sorry I didn't see you were on. I have signed, I think I didn't send the deed yet. We were set to close this week, but I found out I would have to pay 50 grand in taxes, and I didn't know about that. I want to know if I can withdraw selling the house, without having a problem with the buyers, sueing me?

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the house located?

Highland Ca

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No thank you

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
