Dual Representation, such that our firm can represent both you and your lender in handling the closing, is both legal and commonplace in Massachusetts for Real Estate Lawyers and Closing Attorneys to offer.  

A review of the Purchase and Sale Agreement is included in the Attorney Fee, as it provides savings to Buyers by avoiding duplication of services and permitting efficiencies.  The cost for separate representation may add several hundred dollars to the overall cost of a closing.  In all but the rarest of instances, the interests of the lender and the purchaser are so similar that there is no conflict of interest.   

Local Massachusetts banks, Greater Boston mortgage companies, and even some of the national lenders who provide mortgages in the Metrowest and South Shore areas of Massachusetts can be very selective with which attorneys they let handle real estate closings for them.
