What does a real estate attorney do for a buyer?

            An attorney representing a buyer will conduct due diligence on the building and inform the buyer of any relevant facts, such as financial history, complaints by or about other tenants, and management problems.  The attorney will also negotiate the contract for the buyer, order and review the title report to ensure that the buyer receives clear title at closing,  and assist with the coop or condo board.  An attorney will also be present at closing to guide the buyer through the documents and any last minute issues that may arise.
