Steeg Law’s Residential Title Insurance Agency
Steeg Law’s in-house title insurance agency for Residential closings in Greater New Orleans and throughout Louisiana is Orleans Title Insurance Agency. Our attorneys have more than 100 years of combined title examination, underwriting and claims handling experience. Our experience improves the efficiency and quality of these transactions, which make for orderly closings for home buyers, sellers, and lenders.
We understand that many home buyers are nervous about a big personal investment. Our attorneys are able to guide you through the purchase of your home. We help you understand the unfamiliar documents, and work with your lenders to make the home purchase go smoothly.
We also take pride in recognizing issues before they become a problem that it’s too late to solve. One example is a survey that showed a neighbor’s fences inside the property being purchased, cutting off a big part of the yard. We pointed out the issues and worked with the buyers to make sure the sellers got the neighbors to move the fences before the buyers went through with the purchase.
