Assured Land Transfers, Inc. was founded by the attorneys of Johnson Duffie to provide the protection of title insurance for investments in real estate. Unlike most title insurance agencies, we ensure that an attorney is present to conduct every closing to make sure you and your home is protected.
The title to every property insured through Assured Land Transfers, Inc. is reviewed by an experienced real estate attorney. All rates for title insurance are set by the Pennsylvania Insurance Commission. The premium is paid at closing. We provide title insurance policies issued by First American Title Insurance Company, one of the largest and longest standing companies in the industry.
We are a complete title company offering comprehensive services at competitive rates. You will receive the attention and time you deserve throughout the entire transaction. A partial list of services includes:
Our team has the experience and know-how to bring all your transactions to a smooth conclusion—especially the more complicated ones that require specialized knowledge such as multi-party/multi-state transactions, cross-collateralized loans, bank owned property (REO), reverse mortgages, and those that involve trusts and corporate entities.
Title Commitments & Reports
We search for and examine all town and county records relevant to the subject property and issue title reports and supporting documentation in accordance with the state, title company, and lending institution’s requirements, in support of a purchase, refinance, REO, and commercial transactions.
Attorney Title Opinions
We can provide Attorney Title Opinions when need providing a description of the title status, as well as a list of actions necessary to produce clear title.
Closing & Settlement
Nothing impacts the borrower/buyer experience, nor the lender’s reputation, more than the closing. We always allow plenty of time for the closing, explain the process in detail to each borrower, and encourage them to ask questions as we go.
Once the closing is complete, you can count on us to deliver a pristine signing package, carefully disburse according to instructions, and, when required, take the transaction all the way through to recording.
Whether you are a first-time home buyer, a seasoned real estate investor, or trying to sell your home, we are here to assist you along the way. From offer acceptance to closing, we support the entire process of purchasing or selling a home or commercial property. Our experienced team will be by your side to answer any questions and ensure your transaction goes exactly as planned. Real estate can be stressful, we are here to change that.
With us, you never have to be concerned about thoroughness, accuracy, state compliance or the timely delivery of critical mortgage documents. Upon completion we will deliver them via secure integration with your document management platform or overnight delivery, depending on the type of document and/or your preference of conveyance. We produce documents within lender and regulatory time frames and perform updates ASAP.
We prepare deeds, mortgages, notes, easement agreements, leases, option agreements, and agreement of sales, and 1031 Exchange documents and agreements. We know each jurisdiction’s detailed deed submission requirements, thereby minimizing the risk of rejection at recording.
We also take care of the Closing Disclosure or HUD statement preparation.
The purchase and sale of real property is a smart wealth-building tool. But property owners may lose valuable investment funds when the sale of an investment property requires the payment of capital gains taxes. Our 1031 exchange services empower investors to preserve equity and save tax dollars through tax-deferred exchanges. Under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code, you can defer the payment of capital gains taxes when you sell investment property and acquire “like kind” replacement property. When you work with us, you have peace of mind knowing your transaction is in competent experienced hands.
We support rural communities and agriculture by providing a wide range of agricultural property legal services addressing those legal issues faced by the farming community including land use and zoning, farm preservation, agricultural easements, clean and green, purchase and sale, farm loan closing services, and leasing.
Our practice is not a signing agency, but a real law firm, delivering a comprehensive suite of legal services. Only members of our law firm conduct closings for us—we don’t use 1099 attorneys—to ensure we’re protecting our clients’ confidential information and consistently delivering quality service.
We are one of the few title insurance agencies in the area that has been certified by an independent auditor to be compliant with the Best Practices of the American Land Title Association.
