Regarding foreclosure contracts where the foreclosure lender is the Seller:
Make sure that the contract states that Purchasers have the option of choosing their own attorney. Recently, our Real Estate Department discovered that many lenders have a clause in their sales contracts requiring Purchasers to use the foreclosure lender-selected attorney for their closings. In a foreclosure situation, I find it best for each party to select his own attorney.
