Real Estate Guidance
In Georgia, it is customary for the closing attorney in a residential transaction to represent the lender providing financing. When a lender is not involved, the attorney represents whomever is designated in the purchase and sale agreement.  However, regardless of the party represented in a residential closing, a Georgia attorney owes a duty to all parties in the transaction.  Those duties include:

Closing the transaction pursuant to the terms of the purchase and sale agreement.
Ensuring compliance with applicable State and Federal laws.
Following the lender's closing instructions (where a loan is involved).
Acting as escrow agent for documents and funds.
Preparing and overseeing the proper execution of deed instruments and closing documents.
Legally effectuating the documents with the appropriate court.
Issuing final title policies.
