Question Presented: 

An attorney who has rendered a title opinion to a client on real estate he is purchasing, may also, with the client's consent, render a title opinion to the bank financing the purchase, and he would not subsequently be precluded from representing either party in a foreclosure proceeding which does not bring into question the validity of the legal title or the mortgage as a valid first lien, provided he is not then representing both bank and mortgagor as regular clients or that there are no additional conflict of interest factors involved beyond the fact of having rendered the original title and loan opinions.
