You might want to speak to another attorney. Like I stated earlier, in Massachusetts there is a paper you sign that says basically if the attorney makes a mistake you will reclose to rectify it. However WV may be different. I have never heard of an attorney advising one not to attend the closing. P of A's are not unusual but for an attorney to advise not to attend seems odd. And yes with all those people involved with the closing and probably looking at the HUD-1 settlement statement someone should have caught it.
at the closing, prepared the closing statements for you and discussed them with you.... I am surprised that
with a title company involved, two attorneys, a buyer and a seller and I am assuming each one had a Realtor, that no one figured out a 14000 $ mistake, we are not talking about 1000 $....
Sit down with your attorney and discuss the matter.....
Take care and good luck to you!
