Seller's Checklist
  • Attendance: It is imperative that all parties attend the closing. If this presents a problem, please call us immediately.
  • Mortgage Payoff Information: You need to provide us with the lender names, loan numbers, and telephone numbers for all current mortgages on your property. You will need to freeze any home equity accounts and provide written authorization for us to obtain the payoff statement(s). We need this information as quickly as possible in the process, as many lenders now require significant advance written notice for payoff information.
  • Condominium Lien Release: If the property is a condominium, you will need to obtain this statement from the condo association indicating the amount of the condo fees and assessments per month, and whether or not they are paid to date.
  • Mobile Homes: If the property is a mobile home, you will need to contact the park owner to obtain a statement indicating the amount of the park fees per month and whether or not they are paid to date. Arrangements will need to be made for the park owner, who needs to consent to the sale, approve the new buyers, and to sign the new deed to the buyers.
  • Deed Preparation: As the seller, you are responsible to provide the new deed conveying your interest in the property to the buyers. As a convenience, our office can prepare the deed for a fee that you will be charged for as part of the closing costs. If someone else is preparing your deed, please notify us as soon as possible, as you will need to provide us with the proposed deed at least one week in advance of the Closing for review.
  • Tax Bill: Please provide a paid tax receipt for the most recent bill paid, or send us the unpaid bill for payment at closing.
  • Water/Wastewater Bills: If your Town or City provides municipal water or wastewater to the property, it may be necessary for you to arrange for a final reading prior to the closing, and send us a final bill to pay at Closing.
  • Occupancy Certificate: This is required if the property is new construction.
  • Photo Identification: Each seller needs to bring a valid driver’s license to the Closing for notary purposes.
