Yes. The seller’s attorney can begin representation with the sales contract. An attorney can do the negotiating with the buyers. If the buyer’s attorney has certain objections to the sales contract, the seller’s attorney can deal with the objections. The seller’s attorney will prepare any legal documents such as the deed and a power of attorney so that the sellers do not need to attend the closing. The seller’s attorney then attends the closing, reviews all closing documents, and transfers funds as needed.
For the seller, an attorney allows him or her the time to pack, move to the new home, and get on with his or her life without dealing with the legal issues.
