There are states that do not use or suggest attorney reviews. Attorney reviews is like insurance, you don't think you need it until something happens. It is in your best interest, but if you cannot afford the extra money to pay, then you MUST have an agent that understands the contact and explains it to you. Read over it yourself, word for word and make sure everything stated is what you agree to. In Oklahoma, we didn't have attorney reviews and after moving to NJ, I can see the benefits of them. If you are doing this as a for sale by owner without an agent-get an attorney without a doubt, you need someone looking out for you.
