they may have used the same attorney for years and know he is good.... I say feel out the seller first and ask a few questions like.... why this attorney.

people use the same realtor for multiple purchases so why not use the same attorney for multiple purchases.

thumbs up if you like!

Are you working with a real estate agent? I recommend asking them for several attorney suggestions. Then, you can call and make a decision for yourself. I would not use a seller's recommendation. Good luck!

100% not a good idea at all. Definitely a red flag. An attorney is a very well worth $1,000 or so for a real estate transaction. So many things can come up that an attorney's representing YOUR best interest is important. Find your own attorney, I couldn't stress to enough. Good luck.

This is an immediate red flag - 'conflict of interest' ...particularly if the seller has done business with this attorney in the past.
