- For Attorneys
Generally, it is not necessary to have a lawyer in order to transfer property or deliver a deed to the county recorder, although it may be advisable to have the documents reviewed by an attorney. A contract for sale will typically specify the terms upon which the deed
will be delivered to the purchaser. The contract for sale may specify that other documents are required to be provided before the deed is delivered to the buyer, such as financial documents necessary to secure financing. It may also specify that title insurance is to be provided,
in which case a title company may be involved. I suggest reviewing the document for specific requirements.
