Newbies always want to do without an attorney. The experienced always use an attorney. Guess what happened to the experienced that made them experienced LOL.

By the way in your area a title company may replace the attorney, I don’t know about that. But you need the help of somebody who is an independent expert.

I’m in the process of closing on a duplex. There have been no major issues regarding legal concerns, and I’m wondering should I use an attorney for my closing. Have any of you ever closed without one? If I do close without one what risk am I assuming? Will I be overlooking some sort of liablity?

Thanks in advance for your advice!!

You should have an experience pro in your corner. Be it an RE attorney or title company - the cost is well worth it. Be sure to get title insurance in any event to offset any liabilities you may be incurring regardless of which way you choose to handle this.
