What is the advantage of hiring a real estate lawyer for a closing?
The advantage of hiring a real estate lawyer for a closing is that a lawyer is well-versed in all the contractual terms and Florida law governing those transactions. If you’re a buyer or a seller, by hiring a real estate lawyer, that lawyer can tell you the nuances, the pros, the cons, follow the deadlines for you on a contract, and basically hold your hand through the closing. If you do not hire a real estate attorney, and you rely on the buyer’s title company, or you hire a title company that is not real estate lawyer, then you run the risk that the company is not protecting your interest, is not out there looking for you. And at the end of the day, many title companies class down. Whereas as attorney is governed by the Florida Bar.
