If you’re getting ready to buy a home or business, you already know that you’ll need all of your legal documents in order and have your financial situation ironed out. While your real estate agent might walk you through some of the basics of the closing and how to manage the process of a closing, the last step is often speaking with an attorney and signing your closing documents.
While it may seem easy enough to sign on the dotted line, there are a few important things you’ll want to bring to your real estate closing so that you can complete the transaction without a hitch. So, what should you bring to your closing besides yourself?
- Government Issued ID – Your real estate legal services can’t be completed without property identification from all parties involved in the sale. You may need to inquire with your attorney about the identification that will be best suited for your specific transaction.
- Closing Payment – Even if you’ve worked out an agreement with your bank in the form of a mortgage, your attorney will likely need a cashier’s check in the agreed upon amount for closing. Your real estate legal services likely can’t be conducted without this important payment.
- Outstanding Paperwork – This might seem like something that should already have been managed, but sometimes there are last-minute items to be handled prior to a real estate closing. Your attorney can provide the necessary guidance, so they can complete their real estate legal services succinctly.
