<mod cut ... this info should be dm'd>

I can't really recommend a re attorney - it's typical not to use a lawyer in real estate transactions in Indiana. The agents & title company do what the attorneys do. (Though if you asked an attorney they'd wholeheartedly disagree!)

When we moved here from Illinois I couldn't believe that no one used attorneys - but we brought our Illinois lawyer here for our purchase.

Don't bet on it ... find a lawyer. You might give Valparaiso University School of Law a call .. they could probably refer you.

No disrespect taken, domergurl. I'm quite aware that I'm not an attorney and can't dispense legal advice.

But it is true, most everything that is done by an attorney from contract to close is typically performed by an agent or title company in Indiana.

That's why Indiana agents think Illinois agents have it so easy.

To me, it was always worth the couple hundy to get an attorney to review the documents.
