Misha, Home Buyer in 11375

Is it normal for lawyer to charge fees the day prior to closing day? I thought we would be writing out all payments on date of closing.

Hi Annette,

The lawyer asked for payment to be made one day before the closing date.

Custom in Forest Hills is to pay all the lawyer's fees at closing.
Did your lawyer tell you when his fees are due?

it does seem highly irregular. Almost always in my deals the lawyer settles at closing once all the money is transacted. If there are a number of major charges above the agreed price, he may want to clear that up in private(in case there's an argument). Otherwise if it's a standard fee, then it seems a bit wierd to pay before the transaction is completed
