Typically, an escrow company specializing in business sales transactions handles all the proper UCC liens and personal guarantees that are normally associated with seller financing. No need for an attorney for that part, but I do recommend an attorney to review the deal.

The Attorney can probably use his escrow account for that purpose. But I would ask your Attorney.
