Before closing there are a few items to be sure you have in order. See the below and let us know if you have any questions and we will be happy to help you check off all the items on the list.
Buyers and sellers must bring a valid photo identification card to closing
Buyers must have collected or good funds to close
Inform your closer if your buyer requires extra “review time.” This way we will do our best to provide them with a closing package the day before closing.
Inform your closer if there is an attorney involved in the closing. This allows us to provide a closing package for them to review and they may not be required to attend the closing thus saving your customer unwarranted legal fees.
Modern Abstract & Title, (and Lenders) must preapprove any Power-of-Attorney to be used in a closing.
Let your closer know ahead of time if the buyer and seller will be closing together.
Inform your closer ahead of time if any party pertinent to the closing is deceased.
Tell your closer if your sellers are divorcing. We can prepare separate package and even close separately, if necessary. (Please let your closer know one week prior to the closing).
Let us know if anyone involved in the transaction is physically or mentally impaired so we can make appropriate arrangements.
Inform your closer if the closing will be a “mail-out” to either the purchaser or the seller well ahead of the closing date. (Please let your closer know one week prior to the closing).
Everyone MUST be present when we notarize his or her signatures.
PLEASE NOTE: We will require that all wires for purchase ‘transactions be received no later than 60 minutes prior to the scheduled closing time. For refinance transactions, we will require receipt of wired funds no later than 2:00 p.m. on the day of disbursement to avoid any delay in funding. All funds due at closing must be in the form of a cashier’s check OR wire transfer prior to closing.
