Checklist for Closing???

I know there have been posts similar to this before, but what exactly do you need to come prepared with (paperwork, id, etc) for closing on a new home?

Am closing on our house on Friday and want to make sure that I'm not forgetting anything!

Thanks in advance.

Your lawyer should give you a complete list of all the checks you will need to bring and who they should be made payable to.

Your lawyer will let you know exactly what certified checks to bring - and for what amount and who they are made out to. We brought our check book and it was a good thing as we had to write a couple additional checks.

Be ready to sign sign sign.

Don't forget to get the keys from the seller (and any garage openers...).

Do you need to bring paperwork as it relates to mortgage? insurance? utilities?

How many forms of ID do you need to bring? (Do they need to be picture?) SS card?


Sorry...i'm totally CLUELESS!

Thanks!

You'll need your homeowners insurance policy if it was sent directly to you and not mortgage company. Otherwise it's just the checks. You need a photo ID.

If you were recently married and changed name bring marriage certificate if it's not changed on the photo ID already.
