Home buyers in South Carolina are given the freedom to choose their own real estate closing attorney. If you are a first-time homebuyer, this may seem like just another hurdle to home ownership and one more decision causing you to lose sleep. If you are a repeat home-buyer or a real estate investor, you may already have experience with a local real estate lawyer.
So, if you’re new to the South Carolina Upstate and are looking for a local real estate lawyer to act as your closing attorney, how do you choose the right one? You have a few sources available to you.
The first way you might find a closing attorney is through your real estate agent. Your realtor probably works with many different local attorneys and can give you a few recommendations. Remember though that your realtor has probably worked with a limited number of real estate attorneys unless they have been a realtor for many, many years.
Another way to find a real estate closing attorney is to ask your mortgage lender. If your lender has been in “the business” for a few years, they have probably worked with a number of attorneys and can give you their impression of the lawyers they have had experience with over the years.
Yet another way to find your closing attorney is to ask your friends and family. If they have purchased a home recently they may have some recommendations for you and can make an introduction.
Finally, you can search the Internet to find local real estate closing attorneys and then choose one who fits your criteria and can meet your closing schedule.
