Bank attorneys will often review a P & S for a buyer.
I am not a legal advisor / attorney, however my experience is that the attorney who does so, is not working for the buyer.
This is a practice that goes on to help real estate transactions, but it isn't the best way to use an attorney.
Having your own attorney will cost a little more, but then if something comes up, I believe that you have more standing with that attorney than with a bank's attorney who "did a favor for a buyer."
