Vinson & Coffinberry, P.C. is a family-founded law firm with deep roots in Houston County and other communities throughout Middle Tennessee, including Stewart, Dickson, Hickman, Humphreys, Cheatham, and Montgomery counties. For more than 40 years, our lawyers have been proudly serving the legal needs of individuals, families and businesses throughout the region.
We provide title services with an emphasis on commercial and cash real estate closings. We also provide legal assistance with business formation and general business matters, contract negotiation and preparation, estate planning, probate administration, land project development, real estate and construction disputes, and legal matters related to real estate, including:
Quiet Title Actions: a special legal proceeding to determine ownership of real property. A party with a claim of ownership to land can file an action to quiet title, which serves as a sort of lawsuit against anyone and everyone else who has a claim to the land. If the owner prevails in the quiet title action, no further challenges to the title can be brought.
Partition Suits: a lawsuit between co-owners of real property, that seeks an judgment ordering the property to be sold, or in some cases divided so that the co-ownership is terminated. In some instances where the parties have agreed to this procedure, the order will require one or more co-owners to sell their interests to the other co-owners at an appraised value, although this is not common.
Curative Title: a set of procedures used to “cure” defects in chains of title, such as correcting instruments that are erroneous or ambiguous. The process is focused on whether the actual use and possession of the land under review is consistent with record title.
Deed Preparation Services: as you prepare to purchase or sell real estate, you may require the services of a real estate lawyer. The Vinson & Coffinberry team adeptly prepares and reviews deeds for clients approaching a real estate transaction. Our law firm is a reliable source of information and help regarding warranty deeds, quitclaim deeds, and grant deeds. We will also ensure that a deed is properly recorded with the county. Our clients never have to worry about loose ends they were not aware of or failed transactions due to faulty preparation or recording.
Contracts: before finalizing the transaction, real estate document preparation has to be completed accurately and without omissions. Relying on attorneys who are experienced in leases and other real estate contracts makes sense if you want to protect your interests in any real estate transaction.
