Closing Your Sale

Several days before the settlement date, the attorney will provide you and the buyer with a preliminary settlement statement for your review. I will thoroughly review the settlement statement with you. If you choose to attend settlement, the closing attorney will review the final settlement statement with you and you will sign the deed and the settlement statement. After the buyer’s complete their portion of the settlement procedure with the attorney, the attorney will do a final title search to make sure no additional liens have been filed against the property. The attorney will then file the deed with the appropriate county registrar of deeds. After the deed is filed, the buyer officially owns the property. The attorney will then disburse the settlement funds to the appropriate individuals to complete the transaction.
