Mortgage Questions - Is A Lawyer Needed

Apply Now!

 Should I use a lawyer to buy a home?

Whether you need a lawyer to buy a home depends on the laws of your state.  States that require an attorney include Texas, New York, Connecticut, South Carolina, North Dakota, and South Dakota.  In theses states, the lawyer performs various functions including the usual role of a title company.

Even if one is not required, you may still want to hire an attorney to review contracts, make you aware of special considerations and assist with the closing process. Your real estate agent may be able to recommend a lawyer. If not, look for one that specializes in representing homebuyers.
