Our Tier Plus service offers fast, expert legal due diligence research and legal opinions for all types of properties in Washington State.
Once our experienced real estate lawyers at Timely Contract Washington have identified and reviewed the public-record documents found at the County Recorder’s Office, as well as zoning, permissible uses of the land, building codes, and more, they’ll organize and analyze all of the records and deliver a legal opinion.
If you’re considering buying property anywhere in Washington State, this legal due diligence service can be invaluable! Once you have an easy-to-understand legal opinion, you can decide whether you want to move forward with buying the property, renegotiate the terms of the sale, or walk away from the purchase.
Sellers can also benefit from our TIER Plus solution, because it helps prevent surprises from cropping up during negotiations or while the property is under contract.
While some issues impacting the title and permissible land uses are fairly straightforward, others can be extraordinarily complex.
