If I already have a real estate agent and can use a title company instead, why should I hire a real estate attorney for the closing?

Buying or selling your home is usually the biggest monetary transaction our clients make in their entire life. When so much money and risks are involved, buying and selling real estate without legal representation can be very dangerous. Though a real estate agent is often the one to prepare the contract and a title company acts as closing agent, the real estate attorney you hire is the only expert involved who can advocate a position and give their client legal advice. Attorneys are trained and have experience to recognize the issues that may arise during a real estate transaction. They can protect their client by assisting in negotiating the contract. Attorneys also may advise their clients on other contract related contingencies–including title, zoning, financing, inspections, and taxes–that title companies cannot.
