Virginia. We already know that we need a lawyer. So does the person selling us the place need one also? Can we use the same one? Shes not using a realitor and neither are we.

It is not required by law, but adviseable for the Seller to retain legal counsel. An atorney cannot represent both parties as it would be a conflict of interest.
