What Can I Expect To Happen On Closing Day?
On your closing day, if we’ve done our job right, you will celebrate a stress-free and memorable moment, working with your Realtor, lender, and our dedicated and friendly staff.
We will complete all the final paperwork and handle the signing of the documents required to transfer ownership.
At the closing, you will produce two forms of identification and a notary will verify your identity, and witness and notarize your signature on certain important documents.
Then, you will sign the closing documents, including the settlement state (also called a HUD or CD, depending on whether you have a loan or not.)
Although most of the documents are standardized and cannot be changed, it’s important still to check them with us for accuracy, and to be sure you understand what you’re signing.
At closing, you may also have to tender other items such as your paid homeowner’s insurance policy or a binder and receipt showing that the premium has been paid, a death certificate from a deceased seller, etc.
The closing agent will review again the monies which transfer, and all the closing costs, including mortgage fees, remainder of down payment, prepaid taxes, and so on.
Prior to closing, a walk-thru will have been conducted with your Realtor, and you will already have wired funds for closing.
The seller will provide proofs of any inspection, warranties, appliance information, keys, garage door openers, and so on.
Borrowers will review and sign the note and mortgage, and make sure the deed is prepared in the correct names and with the proper manner of holding title.
The seller will give you the title to the house in the form of a signed deed, a copy of which you’ll receive at closing, and the original of which will be mailed to you 4-6 weeks after closing, once we receive the recorded deed from the Clerk’s office.
Also, a policy of title insurance will be issued and mailed to you with your deed.
Sellers may not actually get closing proceeds the day of closing if the funding of the transaction is delayed for any reason by the buyer’s lender. For this reason, we always recommend closing before a Friday, and not at the end of the day.
