Buyer’s Closing Todo List

Your home purchase becomes a reality on closing day when ownership is officially transferred to you. Before and on closing day, there are a number of tasks to complete:

  • If you are renting, give notice to your landlord and arrange for the return of your deposit.
  • Confirm your home purchase with your mortgage lender and finalize your mortgage details.
  • Hire a legal professional to represent your interests and manage closing documentation.
  • Obtain home insurance and notify your lawyer and mortgage lender of the selected insurer.
  • Arrange for your self-move requirements or obtain estimates from reputable moving companies and book as far in advance as possible.
  • Coordinate cancellations, transfers and change-of-address notification for medical, financial and contracted services, utilities, licenses, subscriptions, memberships, and personal mail.
  • Organize the connection of services and utilities at your new home.
  • Meet with your lawyer on closing day to sign required mortgage and property closing documentation, pay associated balances and fees, and collect the keys to your new home.
