1. They can review the title commitment and remove exceptions.

Your attorney will know what to look for in your title commitment. These typically include some standard exceptions, but your attorney can help you remove unwanted exceptions. 

2. They can coordinate communication between all parties. 

Lots of people are involved in a real estate closing including the buyer and seller, but also the lenders, brokers, surveyors, and others. An attorney can facilitate clear communication between everyone involved. 

3. They can record the transaction and disburse the funds.

From brokerage fees to taxes, your attorney can make sure the right money goes to the right people and nothing you owe gets unintentionally neglected.

4. They help you avoid legal trouble down the road.

Unexpected obstacles crop up in real estate transactions all the time. Your real estate attorney can make sure these things are handled appropriately immediately and do not come back to bite you in the future.
