Buyer Tips for Closing
Things to Do Before Closing:
*Transfer gas & electric service to your name
*Set up telephone/internet service.
*Notify post office of new address.
*Notify subscriptions of new address.
*Notify your lender & attorney of closing date & time.
*Contact insurance agent for home owner's insurance.
What to Bring to Closing:
*Driver's License or other photo ID.
*Cashier's check for the final amount on Closing Statement, made payable to the Title Company (or yourself).
*Copy of your new homeowner's insurance binder.
A typical closing should take approximately 1 hour, and normally will take place at a title company. You'll be asked to sign a number of documents, exchange funds & receive a copy of your new deed & keys to your new home! Congratulations!
