  • Get an exact accounting of all settlement costs and make sure that everything is on schedule with your lender, inspectors, appraiser, etc. for having the money and necessary documents at the title company for closing.
  • Provide invoices for any unpaid fees (Seller examples: taxes, utilities, assessments) (Buyer examples: inspections, surveys, etc.)
  • Contact your loan officer for a final review of loan terms
