Better safe than sorry! If your planning to purchase a property a real estate attorney will ensure that the property your purchasing has a title free of any leins or emburances. And while a title company can also perform the same tasks, using an attorney would be the best choice. Like I said better safe than sorry! I work with a real estate attorney for many of my closings. He's really good and his name is Joel Lavender, located in Rio Vista in case your looking for an attorney.
