Do I need a lawyer for my closing as a seller?

We think it’s important that seller is hiring an attorney to handle the closing. It’s better to use an attorney than a title company because the fees are the same and you have the benefit of having an attorney review everything, prepare the document, do the title search, prepare the title commitment, and prepare the closing papers for you, so that you can have a very smooth closing with the buyer and ensure that everything is properly done, the proceeds are properly received and dispersed, and you convey clear title on title insurance to the buyer.
