Call a local title company.  At least here in Texas, title companies will provide contracts to individuals that do not have an agent.
Seller still has some fees associated with the sale but no agent commissions.  


A local title company should be able to explain the process and any applicable fees.  Good Luck

The price the attorney quoted you is fair. You could also probably find a good local Realtor who would be willing to handle it for a similar fee.

Individuals at the title companies are not generally licensed so they cannot sign contracts or disclosures on their own.  As mentioned earlier by Mr. MacDonald, they are hired as scriveners for the broker or attorney and act on their behalf. You will probably need to use a broker or attorney to complete the transaction.

Here in Colorado real estate brokers are actually licensed to handle the entire transaction.  However, we almost always contract the title company to conduct the transaction.  They and the mortgage company coordinate with the broker to handle the preparation of all of the necessary documents for closing.  There are a lot of documents.  Definitely call a title company or a real estate broker and they will walk you through it.

The title company will typically follow a contract and help answer questions.

Owner is out at net $0.  Financing is lined up with Bank.  A simple, small ($140K) transaction.
Need a sales contract, and whatever additional paperwork to deliver to bank and title company.  Being quoted about 1% by attorney.

It depends on what type of purchase and what the terms are. Do you have more info?
