Thinking of Selling…Not Staying Local? Here are some things to consider to make the closing easier.

Q. I am selling my home at the end of next month immediately before I relocate across the country. What should I do to protect myself in advance?

A. When you are selling your home and relocating, small delays can cause major stress. It would be helpful to have your own attorney ready to accept Power of Attorney for you should you need to depart before the transfer takes place.  A power of attorney can be drafted quickly and will allow another party to sign all closing documents for you should you be unable to attend the closing.  Another important issue is to be sure you receive a certified check at the closing so that your funds are negotiable when you reach your destination. Many attorneys in other States will not accept the checks of your local closing company and will require either a certified or bank check for your purchase.  Be sure to ask your local closing agent for a certified check prior to your closing.
