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 and schedule your move 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.
