Buying a Home

What’s expected of buyers on or before closing?

Connecticut Valley Title Services will be working closely with your lender and realtor to ensure the closing on your new home proceeds professionally and timely.

Sales Contract Obligations
Connecticut Valley Title Services, Inc. will conduct your closing according to the terms agreed upon in your Purchase and Sale Agreement. That Contract should contain all agreements between the buyer and seller. Should you have any questions about any items in your contract, please discuss it with your real estate agent prior to closing. It is best to get any contract issues resolved before getting to the closing.


Home Owner’s Insurance
Your lender, if applicable, will require that you obtain a Home Owner’s Insurance Policy and one year’s paid receipt prior to closing. This information is required to prepare the final closing figures.


At closing, please be prepared to provide picture identification that includes your signature (ie: valid driver’s license). Some lenders may also require a second form of identification or specifically your social security card.


Closing Funds
Funds brought to closing must be in the form of a bank or certified check payable to Accurate Title. Personal checks are not legally acceptable.


Connecticut Valley Title Services, Inc. will schedule your closing once we have received approval from your lender. We will then contact you or your realtor to schedule a closing date, time and location. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and look forward to providing you with professional, quality service.
