CLERMONT REAL ESTATE ATTORNEY:
In Florida, a real estate closing is a settlement and finalization of a real estate sales transaction. For residential real estate, a closing will usually involve the buyer signing things like the home loan documents (i.e mortgage, note, truth in lending disclosure, closing statement or HUD, etc.) in order to allow the seller to be paid the agreed upon sale price for the property. The seller can expect to pay for things like real estate commissions, prorated condo dues and ad valorem property taxes, as well as any attorneys or closing fees at the time of closing.
Closings are often held at the offices of a title company or real estate brokerage, or at a real estate lawyer’s office. The “closing date” will appear in the purchase and sale agreement (aka “contract”).
Once the transaction closes, a few weeks will pass from the time that the buyer and seller sign the closing documents to the time that the Warranty Deed or Quit Claim Deed and other legal documents are recorded at the county courthouse. They are returned to the buyer along with their title insurance policy.
