FAQ’s With Roy Oppenheim

Full Transcript: Next question that people ask a lot is, what is a closing attorney? And so, they’re really different kinds of closing attorneys but the main closing attorney is really a real estate attorney who’s going to represent the buyer, or in the alternative, going to represent the seller. On occasion, you have a closing attorney who actually is an in-house counsel of a title agency or a title underwriter that may be advising the escrow agents and also occasionally providing some advice to the customers of realtors.

What is a closing attorney?

Because sometimes you have closing attorneys that work inside as in-house counsel for realtors. But obviously, when you are doing your closing, whether you’re buying or selling, it’s well advised to have your own closing attorney, to have your own real estate attorney. So a lot of times when we’re closing, attorney and real estate attorneys could be synonymous with one another.
