Closing Checklist
As the buyer and borrower, you will have items on your checklist that are required by your lender, the seller, and even the title company. 
  • Identification: All parties at the closing should have valid ID.
  • Insurance: Before you can close on the property, you need to secure homeowner’s insurance, which insures the property in the case of damage.
  • Policy of Title Insurance: You must pay for title insurance that guarantees the property is free of previous claims or liens.
  • Closing funds: You must bring all funds agreed upon, in the form of a cashier’s check or via electronic wire.
Take the time to discuss the items on your checklist with your realtor, to make sure there is nothing you’re forgetting, and to have the peace of mind that after the closing settlement you’ll be able to move into your new home.
