Confirm settlement date and time through your real estate agent and/or Hampton Roads Title, LLC. If any seller will not attend settlement, please contact Hampton Roads Title, LLC as soon as possible.
Transfer utilities out of your name as of the settlement date (or other date agreed upon between the parties.) Be aware that utilities cannot be turned off prior to the final walk-through inspection, and unless agreed otherwise, are the seller’s responsibility.
Complete all home inspection items and repairs in accordance with the sales contract and any addenda. Bring all supporting receipts to settlement.
Bring to settlement an unexpired photo identification, your forwarding address, and social security number. Garage door openers and any remaining keys can either be brought to settlement or left at the property, please discuss with your agent.
Obtain wiring instructions from your bank and bring them to settlement if you prefer to have your proceeds wired. This is most easily accomplished with a voided check. Seller’s funds will be disbursed as soon as possible per the jurisdictional regulations (usually within 48 hours of settlement).
Cancel homeowners’ insurance policy after settlement.
