The selection of a closing agent is an important decision. You need someone to carefully protect your interest when you are making one of the largest purchases of your life.
The closing of a real estate purchase is a technical and precise transaction. The title examination and the careful drafting of papers to carry out the actual intent of the parties are integral parts of the transaction. The title requirements must be met to ensure there is a clear and marketable title to the buyer and lender. The signing and acknowledgement of the documents must be properly completed, not only to insure the title, but also to assure that the buyer can convey the property in resale without unnecessary complications. Delivery and recording of the papers are usually the last steps.
