When would it be beneficial to use a lawyer at a closing?
It’s often beneficial to use a lawyer at a closing, because if a legal issue comes up in the mist of the transaction, that lawyer is most likely going to have the capacity to handle it. The fees are also similar to most title companies. A specific circumstance where it would be beneficial is if someone died that was on the title to that property and it’s being sold. That lawyer can open a probate case, and in some cases, have that case resolved before your closing date.
