Experienced Attorneys and a Wholly Owned Title Agency

Clients who come to Stebelton Snider for assistance with real estate transactions, deed issues or title concerns can benefit from receiving legal advice from experienced attorneys as well as comprehensive assistance in resolving title issues — all under one roof. SAS Title Agency Ltd. is a title company that is wholly owned and operated by our experienced real estate legal team. We handle the full spectrum of title issues, including closing services, escrow services, title searches, evidence of title/certificates of title, title commitments, issuing title insurance, obtaining clear title, title opinions, lien searches, Preliminary Judicial Reports (PJR) and other title issues.
