Closing is the final step in executing a real estate transaction. The closing date is set during the negotiation phase, and is usually several weeks after the offer is formally accepted. On the closing date, the parties consummate the purchase contract, and ownership of the property is transferred to the buyer. In most jurisdictions ownership is officially transferred when a deed from the seller is delivered to the buyer. Several things happen during closing: ⁕The buyer delivers a cheque for the balance owed on the purchase price. ⁕The seller signs the deed over to the buyer, and delivers the keys. ⁕A title company, lawyer or civil law notary registers the new deed with the local land registry office. ⁕The seller receives a cheque or bank transfer for the proceeds of the sale, less closing costs and mortgage payouts. Closing in escrow usually occurs in states in the western half of the US. A title company or other trusted party holds the money and the signed deed, and arranges for the transfer. This is primarily so that the seller can give up ownership of the property, and the buyer can hand over the payment, without both parties having to be present at the same time. Escrow ensures an orderly transaction, or if something goes wrong, an orderly termination of the agreement.
