Can joint buyers
Initially seller asked that neither of us be present but we contested. A few
days later, he said that he confirmed with an attorney that 1 buyer may be
present. Is this true? Can he refuse to allow both of us to be present?

Yes, joint buyers may both be present, and he has no basis to exclude either of you, so long as there is no prior history of conflict of disputes between him and one of the buyers, which might provide a basis to exclude that person. Otherewise, you are both buying: you have the same and equal rights to be present.
