Attorney Certifications in Pennsylvania

Buchanan Settlement Services offers a comprehensive range of real estate services, including Attorney Certifications. Attorney Certifications are designed to provide our clients with the confidence and peace of mind they need when dealing with their real estate transactions.

What is an Attorney Certification?

Attorney Certification a/k/a Certificate of Title is issued by a licensed attorney after a comprehensive examination of the public records of the county(ies) in which the property is located. The purpose of the certificate is to provide the status of title, detailing all of the recorded documentation affecting a piece of property.

An Attorney Certification does not insure title - that is the primary difference between this certification and title insurance. It is typically requested when the buyer is paying cash to purchase real estate and title insurance is not required, when the status of title makes the property uninsurable, or purely for information purposes. 

Why is an Attorney Certification Important?

Real estate transactions can be complex and involve many legal requirements that must be met. Failure to comply with these legal requirements can result in costly legal disputes and even the invalidation of the transaction. Attorney Certifications help to mitigate these risks and ensure that all legal requirements have been met.

How Do We Provide Attorney Certification?

The attorney at Buchanan Settlement Services, Jeffrey S. Evans, has many years of experience in real estate law. 


When our clients request an Attorney Certification, Mr. Evans will review the legal documents related to their transaction. He will then issue a certification stating that the documents comply with all legal requirements and are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.


We understand that the legal requirements of real estate transactions can be complex and overwhelming, which is why we offer Attorney Certifications as part of our comprehensive real estate services. Our goal is to provide our clients with the support and resources they need to navigate the real estate transaction process with confidence and ease.
