Generally, your interests do align with your lender's interests- so 95% of people do not use a separate RE attorney. It depends on the kind of property, purchase terms, value of the property, amount of your loan, and other things.
If you do use your own attorney separately, that may slow down the whole process a bit as well. Just my 2 cents. Thanks and good luck,
Too much money and too many details not spend the money upfront.
If you need a good one, fixed costs, thorough, let me know.
Many real estate transactions go smoothly and a real estate attorney wasn't absolutely necessary. But many go poorly, their can be title issues, settlement issues and a plethora of other issues that can hinder your purchase. If you already have an attorney in place it makes life much easier. If you are trying to find an attorney after the fact it is like spinning your wheels.
A real estate transaction is a complex legal transaction, a real estate agent does not take place of an attorney. I highly recommend using one.
Absolutely. A great agent and a great Real estate attorney are the most effective and useful professionals to ensure you get through the home buying process successfully.
At the end of the day an attorney is another member of your "team" of professionals working in your interest to make sure you are covered in the purchase or sale of property, and typically a large amount of money also.
Hope that helps
