How much does it cost to knock down a coat closet that has a light switch on the outer wall to expand the size of a kitchen?
There is really no way to guess or estimate this price way too many variables. Best bet is to have several local trades quote your prices.

How can I make sure that I would have clean title when paying cash to buy a property? Dose the title company has it give clear title after closing
You ask for a Warranty title. Title should be clear for closing. You can consult with any local title company or real estate attorney for your particular case. Best of luck!
