Investor friendly title company or realestate Attorney

7 Replies

Hi everyone I'm a newbie investor in the West Virginia Morgantown Clarksburg Fairmont area and I'm having trouble finding a title company or Real estate attorney that is investor friendly I've called other wholesalers and tried to find local REI meetings but none of that's worked I want them to look over my contracts before I start having buyers and sellers sign them. I've called title companies and attorney offices and they have no idea what I'm talking about

It's great to see some more WV folks on here! Welcome to BP! I am in the Martinsburg area, in the Eastern Panhandle of the state. I don't have anyone that I can send  you to, but do have some connections in your area that I can reach out to that can probably give me a recommendation. I will check with them tomorrow and send you what I can find. 

Hopefully I can help! Aaron

Welcome to BP @Cazava Easterling . Have you done a member search on this site for real estate attorneys in the WV area you are looking for? Someone one here will likely be familiar with what you are trying to do.

I actually have I've looked in other blogs and discussions and forums and searched West Virginia title companies and West Virginia real estate attorneys and I see people asking theing the same thing. Most of the post are 2 years old with no replies

@Cazava Easterling - Do you have a particular property you are trying to close? If so, where is it located? 

If you're trying to identify one without much luck, find out who buys the most cash deals in your area and see who they use. Chances are that Closing Company/Attorney is familiar with REI type transactions.

I have a property under contract but I haven't had anyone look over my assignment contracts or my purchase of sale agreement to make sure that they are good to go for the state of West Virginia. I don't have a in buyer yet it's located in Fairmont West Virginia.  I've also tried to talk to other wholesalers  And they didn't say anything back. Yeah I guess I can try to asked cash buyers but I don't have any yet

Thank's Aaron!!

I spoke to an attorney local to my area and he recommended contacting Robert Shuman in Morgantown. He said that a lot of the surrounding area including Fairmont goes to Morgantown for Real Estate Attorney's. Contact Info is below. Hope this helps! 

I will PM you the contact info.
