Bauhaus, do you have a Realtor yet? If so, have you asked this question of them? Yes, it is your right to have an attorney review your contracts, etc. Most attorneys charge a flat rate of $250-300 to review contracts, more if a complex deal or if you want them to attend closing. Since you are a first time home buyer, may not be a bad idea to help you feel comfortable with the whole process. Let me know if I can make any recommendations/referrals.
