In talking to realtors and lawyers, they all recommend that even though this is a private sale, you still need a lawyer to make sure everthing is ok on the purchase agreement and things are finalized properly. I wouldn't imagine it would cost a lot to hire a lawyer just to go over the agreement. I guess in this day and age, you can't be too careful. I would think it would give peace of mind to both you and your parents. I have only bought one home but we did use lawyers though we bought our home through a real estate agent.
