Real Estate

We are involved in all aspects of assisting clients in real estate transactions. This work includes examination of abstracts and preparation of title opinions for clients and their lenders. As a participant in the Iowa Title Guaranty program, we issue commitments and Title Guaranty certificates. We prepare documents such as deeds, contracts, easements, leases and mortgages. We frequently handle closings. We represent both lenders and individuals in mortgage foreclosure actions and contract forfeitures. Our real estate practice includes litigation involving adverse possession, actions to quiet title, forcible entry and detainer actions (evictions) and other matters involving real estate. Charles L. Corbett has served on the Real Estate Section Council of the Iowa State Bar Association and the Title Standards Committee of the Woodbury County Bar Association and has made presentations to various groups on real estate topics.
