Hello,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a US lawyer.
I don't know where your house is, but in many US states parties to the sale of a house must be represented by counsel.

To find a real estate lawyer in the state where your house is, you can contact the Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service in that state and they can refer you to an attorney who can assist you. Their referral fee is about $50, but it includes a half hour free consultation with the lawyer, which you can have over the phone so that you don't have to fly in from the UK to do so.

Could not get in touch with anyone at the bar association but still not done yet.

You could also try a commercial legal referral site, such as Martindale.com or Avvo.com
