Experienced Real Estate Lawyers
Whether you are on the buying side of a real estate transaction, or the selling side of a real estate sale in Avon, the attorneys at Beckett-Law have the experience and knowledge to ensure that your transaction keeps moving forward without a problem. Considering that most real estate transactions are often the biggest transactions individuals make is not something that should be taken lightly, and the benefit of having an experienced real estate lawyer represent your side of the transaction is absolutely something you must do.
Obviously you need your own real estate attorney to handle your side of the real estate transaction and should never use the same attorney that is offering to handle both sides of a traditional buyer/seller real estate transaction or agreement. You would not want to be left with the uncertainty of whether your best interests were really being served in a real estate transaction.

When conducting real estate purchases and sales in the Farmington Valley, for example, it’s important to pay attention to the hours that each town clerk’s office is open so that a property deed can be properly recorded. All towns within the Farmington Valley have different hours of operation. Our lawyers and support staff at the Beckett Law Group pay attention to these little known but critical facts necessary to a successful real estate transaction.
In Avon, Connecticut for example, there are different hours of operation in the summer. Regular hours are Monday – Friday: 8:30 – 4:30 pm. However, the town’s summer hours of operation are: Monday – Thursday: 8:00 to 4:45 and Friday: 8:00 to 12:30 pm.
Why is this important? Because anyone who is looking to buy a home or condominium has heard of the “closing” – the name for the meeting at where you actually transfer ownership of a property. If you’re selling, it’s that time when you get paid for your property, although how many of you know that you can’t cash your check immediately?? If cash is needed immediately, that requires a wire transfer which must be arranged for ahead of time by our staff at the Beckett Law Group.
As the seller, you will be signing the deed transferring title to the buyer. After the buyer signs all of the mortgage documents, the deed will be recorded on the Avon land records. For most, the buyer’s attorney or their staff person will probably want to record the deed immediately, or as soon as possible. So, it wouldn’t be wise to conduct a closing late in the day, because the Avon Town Clerk’s offices close at 4:30 pm and are not even open on Friday after 12:30 pm during the summer.
Just an FYI: Both buyers, sellers, their attorneys, and agents will usually be there. Usually the buyers will demand an inspection of the property beforehand (“a pre-closing inspection”) immediately prior to closing. Any problems found are then usually hammered out at the closing table. But if they’re not . . . . the real estate lawyers at Beckett Law are here to help protect your interests, whether you are selling your hard-earned assets in Avon and don’t want some kind of hidden costs, or whether you are buying in Avon, Connecticut. Bottom line, you don’t want strings attached to the transaction that could prohibit you from taking ownership because of a hidden clause or stipulation that you were unaware of.
