  • After Your Closing
  • The closing is the last step in the home-selling process where the final transfer of money and title happens.
  • The closing typically takes place at the title company’s office, but arrangements can be made for other closing locations.
  • The buyer, seller, both real estate professionals, and closer are present at the closing. Sometimes the lender will send a representative.
About Home Seller Land Title
  • Make sure all necessary papers and documents are ready and in the hands of the right parties.
  • If your marital status has changed, let your closer know immediately. The person whose name has changed will need to provide a driver's license showing the new name, as well as a marriage license or divorce decree documenting the change.
  • If there is a Power of Attorney, or if there has been a death in the family, make sure your closer knows this ahead of time. Additional documentation will be required at closing, and often documents must be approved by the title company before the closing.
  • Understand when and how you will be paid.
  • If you're buying another property, schedule both closings at the same office back to back. You can assign the funds from the sale to the purchase.
  • Review the key items in your contract:
    • Price and terms
    • Condition of home and inspection
    • Response deadline
    • Settlement date and occupancy
    • Finalizing
Home Seller Land Title Preparing
  • Bring your IDs. Bring either a valid driver’s license, a state-issued picture ID, or a valid passport. Also bring your Social Security number (or Tax Identification Number) to complete the IRS documents. The closer will make copies beforehand.
  • Other IDs and documents. Bring any driver’s license with a name change, marriage license, divorce documents, or Power of Attorney documents if not used to prepare ahead of time.
  • Bring the keys. You’ll give the keys to the buyer. Other items pertaining to the house can be left at the property for when the buyer moves in.
  • Allow at least 1-2 hours. The borrower side is more time-consuming. Some agents may suggest you arrive 30 minutes after the scheduled closing time to allow the buyer to sign the loan package.
  • Review and sign the settlement sheet. The closer will review the settlement sheet with you and the buyer and answer any questions before each of you signs it.
  • Review all documents. Review all real estate documents and sign them. By signing the Warranty Deed, the title officially transfers from you to the buyer. The buyer also reviews their new lender loan package and signs all appropriate documents.
  • Receive funds. The closer will distribute the checks to the appropriate parties. Cashier's checks are typically issued for seller proceeds. If you would like a wire transfer, please contact your bank for instructions (some banks will charge to receive a wire transfer).
  • Receive copies. Choose from paperless documents via email or on a CD, or get paper copies of all documents.
