I am working with a first time homebuyer. He asks me should he hire a lawyer? Yes, I answer. He tells me that his mortgage lender advised him that he can hire a lawyer if he likes but that it is not necessary...paperwork is pretty straight forward and that lawyers usually impede the process anyway! Can you believe that? I was shocked! How can you advise a first time homebuyer not to bother to work with a lawyer when there are a million things that can go wrong when purchasing a home???
I definitely re-advised him to always, always, always hire a real estate attorney because they are paid to protect his interest. I am worried about this lender...
