Real Estate Transactions
Local Real Estate Law Firm
Most high volume real estate firms lose touch with the financial magnitude of buying or selling a home. Whether you are a seller, first-time home buyer, builder, developer, or experienced real estate investor, every real estate transaction is important to Crockett Law P.L. Mr. Crockett is proud to be the first real estate law firm in Jacksonville to utilize the latest technology in closing software. Our secure and environmentally friendly system allows you to always have access to your signed closing documents through our website. Say goodbye to the days of voluminous folders of unexecuted documents as you walk away from the closing table.
It is imperative to remember that many states only allow attorneys to close real estate transactions. Florida law does not have this requirement, therein creating a number of inexperienced title companies that lack the fundamental knowledge needed to deliver a seamless closing experience. Using a real estate attorney does not increase your closing costs and all buyers and sellers should get the maximum value out of every transaction. Mr. Crockett has worked in many facets of the real estate field and Crockett Law P.L. is backed by one of the oldest title insurance underwriters in the country, Old Republic National Title Insurance Company.

Mr. Crockett endeavors to personally attend the closing for an added touch of customer service, comfort and assurance that your transaction is handled correctly.
Crockett Law P.L. also has the ability to handle the transactional drafting needs of all clients. The firm routinely prepares purchase and sale agreements, deeds, seller financing documents including the note and mortgage, U.C.C. Statements, easements, occupancy agreements and other collateral documents.
