Conveyancing & Closing
About a week prior to closing (owning your home), you will be required to sign the final mortgage documents to begin the process of legally owning your property. This is called “conveyancing” and it is facilitated by your solicitor. Your solicitor can be a lawyer or a notary. Be prepared to:
- Review the final loan documents prior to your solicitor meeting.
- Bring a bank draft for your down payment and closing costs, if required.
- Bring 2 pieces of valid ID, with one being a government issued pictured ID.
- Sign the loan documents with your solicitor.
Your loan will normally close shortly after you have signed the loan documents.
*Please do not go out of town around the closing date. You, and anyone else who is going to be part of the transaction have to show up at your lawyer or notary’s office in person.
