Interesting. Not sure about NY but not mandatory need in Illinois and I can’t see where any area would force you to have an attorney. Title companies say it all…if they’re happy,and you agree with figures on closing statement,you shouldn’t need one. Having said that,I ALWAYS have an attorney represent me for two reasons: In the event I can’t be at closing at the last minute,my attorney can be given power of attorney and close the deal for me without everybody’s shorts getting ina bind that I’m not there. 2. It makes me sleep better at night.
