Services

TARES provides the full range of services necessary to efficiently and effectively complete any residential or commercial real estate transaction.

PERFORM TITLE SEARCH

It is paramount that the search on the property you are selling or buying is performed by a qualified and experienced examiner who will take the utmost care in searching public records about the property. Our team provides a title commitment and a statement of all liens, judgments, taxes or encumbrances affecting the property.

EXAMINE AND CLEAR TITLE

Our attorneys review the title and provide legal experience to find practical solutions to complex title defects and conflicts inhibiting closings.

PREPARE THE DOCUMENTS

Our attorneys draft and/or review the applicable settlement documents, deeds, occupancy agreements and other loan documentation.

CONDUCT CLOSING / PROVIDE TITLE INSURANCE

Closings can be scheduled at times and locations convenient to the parties. Take advantage of the fact that our attorneys act as closing agent for most of our closings. The closing agent will take the time to fully explain all documents and fees associated with the closing.

HANDLE THE ESCROW ARRANGEMENTS

Our attorneys prepare escrow agreements and TARES acts as an escrow agent in matters where a neutral third party is needed to hold property or money involved in a transaction until certain conditions are met. Our attorneys are available to answer questions about the escrow. In addition, we prepare closing statements that account for all the documents and money deposited in the escrow.

COSTS

Title insurance premiums, additional endorsement and closing protection letter costs are set in Pennsylvania by the Department of Insurance and are standard throughout the Commonwealth. All other charges by TARES are extremely competitive in the market.

FIDUCIARY TRUST

TARES will act as your trusted fiduciary to hold closing funds and insure that those funds are disbursed in accordance with the closing statement. The trust that Tucker Arensberg has earned in its 100+ year history extends to TARES.

BEST PRACTICES

TARES is committed to maintaining compliance with Title Insurance and Settlement Company Best Practices as established by ALTA, thus helping protect our lender partners and the consumer.
