When Do We Sign the Closing Documents?



Closing documents are typically signed at least two days before the Closing Date. Remember, the Closing Date is different from the Signing Appointment Date. The Closing Date is negotiated between the Buyer and Seller at the beginning of the transaction. However, several things could delay that date, including the Lender not approving the loan or not preparing the documents for escrow in time for us to perform our duties. It’s best to stay in close contact with your Loan Officer throughout the loan process, to ensure your file is proceeding according to schedule.
