Who Needs An Attorney ?


Do you absolutely have to have an attorney to close the deal? I don't think that there's a state in the Union that would require a buyer or a seller to have to have an attorney to close the deal. Do you know of one? Let me know if you do.

On the other hand, how do you feel about relying on a real estate broker or title company to handle the deal? Would it be ethical to discourage the use of an attorney for closing?

I think that just about everybody I know in the business recommends that an attorney be used at closing.


Attorneys know the ins and outs needed to get through the deal. They help make things a little easier for everybody. Attorneys are really good at working with agents, brokers, buyers and sellers when it comes to explaining the little nuances in the closing process. They're very good at explaining the legal stuff that Joe Buyer doesn't understand very well. Attorneys can also put up a nice barrier of protection for you in case things just happen to end up in a mess on the floor and in the ugly zone later.

Put your attorney to work today. He or she can really help you and make the process an enjoyable one as well. You'll be doggone glad you did !

What experiences have you had with your attorneys?
