At Hornung and Scimone P.C., we offer expert real estate buyer representation to clients throughout Massachusetts. Buying a home is the largest purchase you may ever make and when it comes to the legalities, retaining expert legal counsel you can trust is a key aspect to any real estate transaction.

- Handling of any issues or extensions that arise between the Purchase and Sale Agreement and closing.
- Careful review of the title and deed into the Buyer.

- Legal counsel will attend the closing with you and review the certification of title, deed, settlement statement, note, mortgage and ancillary closing documents.
- This is a dual agency in which we will be acting as your attorney as well as your lender’s attorney.
We will handle any problems that arise between the P&S and closing, attend the closing, and review all closing documents with you. In representing you as a buyer, our mission is to provide top legal representation and to make your home purchasing experiences an enjoyable one.
