What are the benefits of using a lawyer to handle your closing?
The benefit of using a lawyer to handle your closing is that if a legal issue does come up, the lawyer is going to handle that for you in most cases, and within reason, whereas a title company may not have the same capacity to deal with a legal issue and may punt it to a lawyer in the midst of the transaction. It gives you peace of mind that if something does come up, it can most often be handled under one roof. The other benefit is you often end up paying the same for that lawyer to handle your closing as you would any title company. The cost is similar as well.
