OK - thanks;

You will need local title company to draft two deeds here.The surveyor should provide the proeprty description as per the survey.Each of you signs the deeds here in the swap.

If either of you wants a title policy the title company can do so.Thats optional if the property is pad for here, no lender financing.The idea is that if there are any title issues on either tract you find out about it here and correct.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks

If you can positive rate5 stars it is much appreciated.
