REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS

Guidance You Can Trust

TITLE INSURANCE

Experienced Examiners

A title insurance policy provides protection to the purchaser against liens and encumbrances on title to real estate that attached prior to the date of the policy.  Title insurance is recommended on any transfer of real estate and is nearly always required by the bank when you get a mortgage.  If you are working through a real estate agent or bank, you can request that your title insurance be ordered from us.

ESTATE PLANNING

Proven Record

When you prepare an estate plan, you are directing your loved ones on how to manage your property after you pass away.  Depending on your goals, you may need a simple plan or a more complex plan.  Either way, your estate plan may include a will, beneficiary designations, a transfer on death instrument, trusts (including special needs trusts), and other vehicles to transfer property.  Let us guide you through that process so that you can focus on what really matters.

PROBATE and trust administration

Let Us Handle the Details

After a loved one passes, the last thing you want to worry about is Court. Let Moehle, Swearingen, and Lobacz, Ltd. help.  In Probate, the Court oversees the distribution of the decedent’s assets.  Probate requires specific notices be provided to specific people at specific times – this process promotes transparency and fairness.  Probate provides protections for the beneficiaries, creditors, and personal representatives and ensures clear title to assets passes to the beneficiaries.

GUARDIANSHIP AND AGENCY

Representing with Respect

If you have a loved one who is unable to make important decisions, a guardianship may provide the needed protection.  In some cases you or your loved one can plan in advance to name an agent through a Power of Attorney to delegate decision making abilities to another person.  Here at Moehle, Swearingen, and Lobacz, Ltd. we want to help you so that you and your loved ones feel protected, respected, and understood.
