2. The attorney will monitor all of the deadlines.

3. The attorney will negotiate on your behalf any items related to the inspection such as repairs that are needed.

4. The attorney will work with you to get financing, and if necessary, negotiate an extension of the mortgage commitment deadline.

5. The attorney will ensure that you receive clear title. This is extremely important.

6. The attorney will explain, and if necessary, negotiate the tax proration between the parties.

7. The attorney will draft, organize and explain all of the paperwork needed for the transaction.

8. The attorney will look for any hidden or unnecessary charges that unfortunately sometimes get added to the final figures.

9. The attorney will attend the closing and explain the paperwork to you.

10. Peace of mind! The attorney will be working for you only — not the other side. This means that you will have an independent party looking out for you and your interests throughout this process.
