First, let me say that I am a buyers agent and duty bound to represent the interests of my clients....however there is a starting and stopping point to my areas of expertise. A conveyencer does what the name implys, but does not create the contract. This is the guiding document of a transaction and all roads spring from this. The job of an attorney who is a real estate specialist is to either create the contract or review the contract once it has been created. This is the most critical job the attorney performs. If the contract does not contain or address an issue [cost overrun, inspections,completion penalties etc] it does not exist in this transaction.

So the conveyencer makes sure things go smoothly but the atty with the help of an experienced buyers agent decides what actually is going to happen. Bear in mind the seller 'builder will also have an atty in his corner and should a problem arise the 2 professionals will look to the contract for resolution.

short reply...i like my clients to give reasonable thought to working with one.
