What Do I Get At Closing?

When you go to the closing table, you sign the paperwork that transfers the property you are purchasing from the current owners to your name. Depending on where you live, you may sign your documents at the same time as the current owners, but Metro National Title has the buyers and sellers come in at separate times. At the closing table, you may wonder what you’ll be signing and getting in return.

Generally, you can expect to receive a copy of all the papers you signed, so you have them for your records. After recording all the appropriate items needed for closing, you will get a copy of your title insurance policy, along with a copy of your recorded deed and mortgage, in the mail after a few weeks. It may feel strange to sign all the papers and not receive a deed or keys at the closing table, but the paperwork you signed gives you security and rights. Then it's just a matter of recording the deed with the county, so you can receive your keys and start moving in.

Before you go to the closing table, feel free to ask your Escrow Officer at Metro Title what you can expect to receive. We are here for you and are here to help you through the real estate transaction. That way you'll know what to look forward to, and you can talk through any questions you have about the paperwork, when you'll receive your keys, and other details.
