06 Aug Selling Home – Buyer’s offer includes me covering their real estate attorney fees.
So before we got close to listing our house (hadn't even chatted with an agent) we had an offer to purchase our house. It's a good offer and we are going to move forward without any realtors. The buyer's attorney sent me an offer letter, which is pretty much standard aside from a request that I cover the buyers attorney fees (no estimate included, just open ended).
I have several issues with this, obviously being open-ended, but also if I am paying a lawyer they're going to look out for my best interests always…
Anyway, I don't think this is a reasonable, or even a smart thing to ask for, but I just wanted to sanity check it before I requested a change.
I appreciate the feedback.
