What does a Georgia Closing Attorney do exactly?

Georgia is one of the states with laws on the books that require a closing attorney to be physically present at a home buying closing. Specifically, Chapter 47 of the Georgia Real Estate Commission makes it mandatory to have a closing attorney in a real estate transaction. It also stipulates their roles and responsibilities.

To give you a summary, usually, the closing attorney will represent the lender, not the buyer or the seller. In fact, lenders usually have their own closing attorneys, and more often than not you won’t even need to hire one. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t.

Of course, you will be more comfortable with a dedicated attorney who will watch out for your interests. If you need a closing attorney for your Georgia home purchase, we will be more than glad to assign one to you. Contact Moreira Team today and get a dedicated Georgia closing attorney.
