Yes, for sure it can, that is pretty common. So remember, you are personally discharged of the loan but the lien is still attached to the property. The debt may be with a third-party buyer now and that is who you would negotiate with.
I honestly do not believe having an attorney adds much in this situation unless this is just something you are not comfortable doing or particularly skilled at. Depending on the amount of back and forth, I suppose it might cost $500 to $1,500 for an attorney to handle.
