Do I need a lawyer present at closing when I’m buying new construction?
I am a first time home buyer (in Illinois) buying a newly constructed townhome directly from the building company. I am doing everything through the builder (using their mortgage/loan company, insurance company, and title company). Is it really necessary to get my own lawyer as well? Also, since I am buying new construction, I never had a realtor. Everyone I’m in contact with about this purchase is from the company I’m buying from.
