In Massachusetts, most Sellers will secure a Real Estate Attorney to represent them with their purchase. In many other States, Title Companies are hired to assist and close the sale. The Attorney replaces the need for a Title Company in Massachusetts.
The Purchase & Sale is drafted by both the Buyers and the Sellers Attorneys each adding verbiage to protect their client. The fee is usually a flat fee versus the by the hour charge for most other Attorneys and can run anywhere from $1000-$1500 on average for Seller representation.
