Attorney Preference in SC

Did you know that the BUYER generally chooses the closing attorney for residential real estate closings? SC Code of Laws section 37-10-102 (1976 as amended) requires that Lenders determine the Borrower’s “preference” as to closing attorney; meaning that the Borrower chooses the closing attorney when closing a loan secured by real estate that is for personal, family, or household purposes. Since the typical residential real estate closing involves a Buyer who will borrow money to purchase a home to live-in, most Buyers choose who the closing attorney will be.
