Preparing for Your Closing – Checklist

Preparing for Your Closing – Checklist

You are getting ready to close on your house, but you realize that you may not be ready. Use this handy checklist to get all of your items ready for closing.

✓ Loan Payoff Information

If you have not already provided this information to your agent, our office will contact you regarding loan information. We will need the loan company, account number and the last 4 digits of your social security number(s).

✓ Prepare for the Home Inspection

The inspection is important for a number of reasons. The buyer will actually spend more time in the home during the inspection than they did during the actual showings. Please have your home in great condition for the inspection. Poorly staged or messy homes can quickly create buyer’s remorse.

✓ Inspection Items

In general, repair requests generated from the inspection will need to be done by a licensed contractor. We will assist in arranging contractors to repair the items.

✓ Receipts

Provide copies of all receipts at least 48 hours prior to the walkthrough to your agent.

✓ Prepare for the Appraisal

Your agent will arrange to meet the Appraiser at your home. Please leave the house in showing condition for the appraiser.

✓ Cancel Homeowner’s Insurance Policy

Please cancel effective the day after closing.

✓ Disconnect Utilities

Contact utility companies and arrange for transfer of service. Most companies will ask for the buyer’s name.

✓ Organize manuals

instructions, warranties etc. for the purchaser.

✓ Funds Notification

Let your agent know how you would like your funds.

✓ School records

Arrange to have the school records transferred to your child’s new school district and/or daycare.

✓ Veterinarian records

Arrange to transfer records to your new vet.

✓ Change Address

File a change of address. This can be done online at www.moversguide.usps.com

✓ Double Check House

Decide if you will keep your plants or give them away. Remember that plants cannot be loaded with your household goods.

✓ Remove Hazardous Wastes

Dispose of flammable, corrosive and poisons.
