Maine Contract of Sale Preparation
A contract of sale lays out the obligations of two parties engaged in the buying, selling, or transferring of a home. It is a legal document that binds the signers to the terms and is necessary for the transfer of a deed. Armour Title can help people in the Maine area to prepare the contract of sale and make sure that everything is complete and correct.
Maine Commercial Closings
If you are buying or selling commercial property, you will require a commercial closing. The commercial closing is similar to a regular closing but involves other aspects like zoning requirements, loan applications, and commercial leases. At Armour Title, we are highly knowledgeable about these aspects and adept at providing commercial closing services in the Maine area.

Armour Title can also act as an escrow agent during a real estate transaction in Maine. We can hold the deed in escrow until both parties are satisfied that their terms are met. We will secure the property and examine all documents thoroughly to ensure fairness.
Maine Title Insurance
Title insurance is purchased during the closing and is available to property owners and lenders. It protects the purchaser from financial loss due to title defects, liens, and other issues. If a lawsuit is filed against you, title insurance will either protect you or reimburse you. At Armour Title, we work with independent underwriters to provide title insurance to Maine area residents.
