Attorney fees if seller backs out of offerI am a potential buyer, and my understanding is that an attorney is used prior to the contract being signed. And offers are not binding in Manhattan.If the seller accepts an offer, and I hire an attorney to begin the closing process I would still have to pay the attorney even if the seller backs out? There is no penalty on the seller for backing out? Everything at this point is "good faith"?April 25 2013 - Manhattanville0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
