Our goal is to make the closing process as smooth and efficient as possible for all parties involved. Here are just a few tips for our buyers, sellers and realtors:
What to bring to Closing:
- Photo ID.
- Social Security Number.
- Certified/Cashier’s check made payable to “Newton Law Firm of Clemson, LLC, Escrow Account” or arrange to wire funds to our escrow account prior to closing.
If purchasing or refinancing a home, please provide us with your insurance agent’s contact information as soon as possible. After the title work is completed, your file will be assigned to one of our closing paralegals. Your closer will provide you or your real estate agent with the amount needed for closing as soon as the final figure is available.
Please complete an authorization form so that we can obtain any necessary payoffs. Please also provide us with the contact information for the homeowner’s association, if applicable.
If the property is held in a trust, LLC, or corporation, we will need the following documents to complete the transaction:
– Trust: Copy of the trust agreement or a Memorandum of Trust.
– LLC: Articles of Organization and an Operating Agreement.
– Corporation: Articles of Incorporation and By Laws.
When sending us the contract, please include contact information for the buyers, sellers, and other real estate agent. Also, please provide us with the commission amount and how it is to be divided. If you are not bringing the earnest money to closing, please let us know in advance so that it is documented properly on the Settlement Statement.
Please do not hesitate to call or email us if you have any questions about your closing.
