You can request to schedule a closing at any time, though we recommend that no closing be scheduled until the title exam has been returned from the courthouse and reviewed by our staff.
A 1031 Exchange, also known as a like-kind exchange, is a way to structure the sale of investment property so that the profit or gain is deferred to a later date.
We have closed many 1031 Exchanges in the past and have worked with most of the major Qualified Intermediary entities.
Absolutely. We’ve closed many short sales. Just let us know when you order title that there is a short sale involved, and when you send over a contract, make sure you send us your approval letter from the short-selling lender. If you don’t have an approval letter, let us know. We’ll work with you as you present your offer to the lender.
Harlan and Associates will not handle any type of simultaneous or double closing if the first of the transactions is a short sale.
Most lenders require a draft settlement statement when considering a short-sale offer. Just let us know when you’re ordering title, and we’ll happily prepare a preliminary HUD for you to use when making your offer.
If don’t want to order title until the short sale has been approved, that’s not a problem. Just let us know in the special instructions of the title request form. We’ll still put together your draft HUD, and hold off the actual ordering of title until you’re ready.
Yes. We have handled hundreds of subject-to transactions.
Absolutely. In fact, most of the land trust investors in town are using documents that we wrote.
That being said, please understand that land trusts have very limited value in Georgia. As an investor, you would probably be better served working through a limited liability company or corporate entity.
