closing on your home
What You Need to Know
The closing is when you officially transfer the ownership of the home to the buyer. It requires the signing of papers that settle all outstanding fees, taxes, title searches, financing and all other transfer obligations from the seller to the buyer.
Make sure everything is icon-clad before settling. The last thing you need is a claims adjustment months after you close.
You should have representation from an closing agent or legal professional in order to prepare the proper closing and settlement papers.
