Our Closings Department follows your settlement from start to finish and ensures all goes smoothly. We help with negotiating and reviewing the Agreement of Sale, complete a full title search to ensure there are no title defects, and represent you at the closing.
Mid-Penn Abstract Company is a licensed agent for Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, First American Title Insurance Company, and Old Republic National Title Insurance Company.
A title insurance policy is issued after a complete title search of the public records is performed. Even when a title search is done, hidden defects may arise months or years later. Hidden title defects could include the following:
- Unpaid real estate taxes
- Creditor claims prior to the date of your transferred deed
- Deed executed under false or expired powers of attorney
- Mistakes in recording legal documents
- Incorrect legal descriptions
- Federal, state inheritance and gift tax liens
- Outsale of portions of the property to other owners
Our dedicated team can help with all types of real estate transactions. Here are a just a few of the services that we can provide on your behalf to help ensure a smooth closing:
- Negotiate and review the Agreement of Sale
- Contact your realtors, mortgage lender, tax collectors, municipal authorities, and anyone else involved in your transaction
- Perform and examine the title search
- Prepare the settlement statement in accordance with the lender’s instructions, receive deposits, and distribute all payments in accordance with the settlement statement. This gives you an accurate detail of all of your closing costs for your transaction.
- Conduct the actual closing. Your closing agent is available before, during and after the settlement to answer any questions you may have.
- Perform all after settlement duties including recording all documents at the courthouse, disbursing all funds, and issuing the insurance policies.

The federal government and state governments have the power to take private property for public use, known as eminent domain. The government must provide “just compensation” to the property owner. At Capozzi Adler, we represent property owners who are facing an eminent domain action. We ensure that the compensation provided to property owners is in fact “just.” Attorney Peter Carfley has 15 + years experience representing property owners in eminent domain proceedings, fighting for the best results possible for his clients. Whether the acquisition involves a business, a home, or undeveloped land, Capozzi Adler can help you ensure you are fairly compensated. To learn more or request a free consultation, contact us.
