The buyer always has a choice. Especially in a short sale, the bank has the right to have someone represent them and complete the deed just as well as you have the right to have a closing company represent you. Normally your mortgage company will choose a closing company to complete the buyers side, such as mortgage, prom. note and all closing docs. In your offer you need to write in buyer to choose their own closing company to make it ion record. Your closing company will then get the closing docs to the sellers closing company for sellers signatures and then get the signed docs over to yours along with the deed and complete the closing. Their closing company will look out for them, make sure someone is looking out for you.
