Buyer Tips For Closing
Things to Do Before Closing:
Transfer gas and electric service to your name.
Set up telephone/internet service.
Notify Post Office of your new address.
Notify any subscriptions of your new address.
Notify your lender and attorney of closing date and 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 your closing statement, made payable to the Title Company. If you are receiving funds from another Title Company from the sale of another home, and you need those funds to close on a new house, have the Title Company closing the sale of your home make your closing check payable to both you AND the Title Company closing the sale of your new home.
- Copy of your new homeowner’s insurance binder.
