Interesting. So you yourself hired them, or they were part of the brokers services? I think that's the subtlety I'm looking for here. I have no doubt lawyers are involved behind the scenes, but not explicitly hired by the buyers or sellers.
The brokerage is owned/run by two real estate attorneys. My wife is friends with the wife of one of them. When they heard about what we were trying to do (short sale a money pit condo), he got us in touch with one of his agents. So I guess technically we did not hire the lawyer, but I believe we had the benefits as if we had hired one directly.--
