Hiring a real estate attorney when purchasing a home is a personal choice; however, it is recommended for your protection. If you choose to use an attorney, you must do so no later than 3 days after your offer has been accepted by the seller. The attorney will review potential concerns/changes for consideration. He/she will also review the title commitment from the title agency, review the deed from the seller prior to loan settlement, and the lender closing documents on or before the loan closing date.
