If you have come this far, it means it is almost time for congratulations, but not until you tie up these final loose ends:
Final Walk-Through Inspection
The final inspection takes place the day before, or the day of closing. You will visit the property to verify that all is in working order, everything is the same as when you last viewed the property, that there are no extra items left behind, and that everything included in your purchase is still at the property.
Home Services and Utilities
We will provide a list of useful numbers for the activation of home services and utilities after closing occurs.
We are ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch pop up, even at this last stage. If something at the property breaks down, or some other minor detail comes up – no need to worry. We have encountered these problems before so we know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manor.
The closing agent will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which details the financial transactions enacted in the process. You and the seller(s), as well as the closing agent, will sign this statement, certifying its accuracy. If you are obtaining financing, you will have to sign all pertinent documentation required by the lending institution. If you are unable to attend the scheduled closing, arrangements can be made depending on the circumstances and the notice we receive. If you are bringing funds to the transaction, you can elect to either have the funds wired electronically to the closing agent’s escrow account, or bring a certified bank check in the amount specified on the settlement statement. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for you to take possession of at closing.
