Keys to a Successful Closing

Keys to a Successful Closing
PRIOR TO CLOSING

Buyers:
Verify with your Loan Officer that all conditions have been met.
Notify your Escrow Officer the names of your lender and homeowner insurance companies.

Sellers:
Provide your Escrow Officer with your forwarding address, any existing mortgage information, leased
equipment, Homeowner Association information, and utilities (if they are to be paid out of escrow.)



BUYERS AND SELLERS
Confirm with your agent that all contingencies have been satisfied.
Keep your agent informed of any vacation plans or times you will be unavailable..
If you plan to have your documents reviewed by an attorney, please notify your Escrow Officer at least 48 hours prior to signing.


BEFORE YOUR SIGNING APPOINTMENT
Expect to sign at the escrow company one or two business days before the closing date.
If funds are required to close, be prepared to bring the monies in the form of a cashier’s check 24 hours before recording or wire transfer the same day as closing.
Have a valid photo identification available at your signing appointment: Driver’s License/State ID, Passport, or Green Card.
Expect the signing to last approximately one hour if you are the buyer and 30 minutes if you are the seller.
