Agent & Price
If you have come this far, 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 the day before, or the day of the closing. The buyer visits the property to verify that all is in working order, everything is the same as when the buyer last viewed the property, and that there are no extra items left behind.
Cancel Home Services and Utilities.
In order to avoid extended interruption in utility services it is often a good ideal to contact service providers well in advance of closing to schedule the disconnection or transfer or services like gas, hydro, internet. We’re happy to offer advice and guidance along the way.
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 the buyers’ loan does not pull through on time, there is no need to worry. We have encountered these problems before so we know how to handle them efficiently and in a stress-free manner.
The attorney’s involved will furnish all parties with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial transactions enacted in the process. If you are unable to attend the scheduled closing, then arrangements can be made depending on the circumstances and the notice that we receive. If you are receiving funds from the transaction, you can often elect to either have the funds wired electronically to an account at your financial institution, or have a check issued to you at the closing. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for the new purchaser at the closing usually distibuted by the seller’s attorneys’s office or listing agent, so that the purchaser may receive these items at this time.
