This a reasonable request since the other side does not know for a fact what you may or may not owe. Your claim could be incorrect in that you may think you don't owe any money but you may in fact owe monies. You indicated that you have am attorney and this is a question that your attorney should have explained to you.
If you don't have one then negotiating a contract when there is an attorney on the other side is not a good idea.
You can contact me if you need help in this matter or if you would like to have another attorney review the documents of the sale
