Signing the Close Documents

When the lender is ready to “close” your loan, or “fund” it, your real estate agent and your mortgage broker will have you sign the final loan documents. Signing will take place in front of an escrow officer. Ask your mortgage broker if there is anything you need to do to prepare for this, such as bringing a photo ID. Allow yourself enough time to review the documents for accuracy.

If funds are being wired: “Wiring instructions” direct the electronic transfer of money between financial companies. If possible, arrange to have the wiring instructions in place ahead of time and checked for accuracy by both the sender and recipient of the wire. It is critical that these instructions be exact, and even so, delays are all too common.

Congratulations!

Your mortgage broker or escrow officer will call you to confirm that the money has been transferred and the loan has closed.
