Any and all title issues must be resolved prior to closing so the seller can deliver a clear title to the buyer. In addition to the title examination, we will review your survey to ascertain whether there are any encroachments onto the property such as a fence or driveway.
We also work closely with your lender to establish a time and date for the closing and to make sure your lender has everything needed to finalize the loan documents. The loan documents are then forwarded to our office where we review and prepare the documents for execution along with a final settlement statement. The closing itself normally takes about an hour to review, explain and execute all of the documents.
