The most important document that you sign, a purchase contract, is the document that defines the obligations and responsibilities of the Buyer and the Seller until the closing occurs. In South Carolina, an attorney is required to supervise the title search, preparation of the loan documents, the closing and recording the documents. Along the way there are decisions that you must make that will affect your home ownership. The right to choose the closing attorney
belongs to the Buyer and not the agent, seller or lender, so you have the right to choose any attorney, even if a list is provided to you.
