Home Services and Utilities.
Don’t forget that home services and utilities must be transferred prior to closing in order to avoid prolonged interruption. Often this can be arranged well in advance and scheduled effective upon your date of closing. We’re happy to offer advice and guidance along the way.
If you have come this far, then this means that it is almost time for a congratulations, but not yet. Do not forget to tie up these loose ends:
Final Walk-Through Inspection.
More of a formality than anything else, the final inspection takes place a day before, or the day of the 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.
We are ready to assist you should an unforeseen glitch pop up, even at this last stage. Something at the property breaks down, or some other minor detail – no need to worry. We have encountered these problems before so we know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manor.
If you are obtaining financing, you will have to sign all pertinent documentation required by the lending institution prior to closing. If you are bringing funds to the transaction, you can elect to either have the funds wired electronically through your attorney’s office or bring a certified bank check when meeting with your attorney in the amount specified on the statement of adjustments provided by your lawyer. If you are unable to attend the scheduled closing, arrangements can be made depending on the circumstances and the notice that we receive. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information through their lawyer so that you may receive these items upon close.
