In Georgia, real estate closings are conducted through a licensed attorney, with the funds being routed through the attorneys trust account. The borrower has the right to select the attorney of his or her choice as part of the sales purchase agreement. The attorney is involved throughout the process, from the date the contract takes effect through the closing date, and in fact beyond. The attorney orders a title search to confirm good and clear title is being passed to the borrower at closing. The attorney also works with real estate agents, brokers, lenders, sellers, buyers, homeowners association, etc.. to make sure the closing goes off without a hitch.
The closing takes place in the attorneys office and generally takes 30 minutes to an hour. While the borrower becomes the owner at that point and time, the attorneys role is not finished. Documents need to be recorded in the county records office, title insurance policies need to be delivered, and the attorney must follow up on any issue that emerges post-closing.
