LEO: Real Estate - Seller's Attorney Omitting  LE Op. 238


Real Estate - Seller's Attorney Omitting Title Examination.


January 3, 1974


It is not improper for seller's attorney to prepare a general warranty

deed and a purchase money deed of trust for his client without examining

the title thereto even if the buyer is not represented by an attorney so

long as the seller's attorney makes clear to said buyer that the attorney

does not represent the buyer.


Committee Opinion January 3, 1974
