A day to day checklist of things to do during your final four days in your old house.
Schedule final utility meter readings for day of closing or possession, including:
In case the meter readers come while you're at the closing, arrange for a friend or relative to be home during the time you're out of the house.
Verify the moving company has that it has you on their schedule and reconfirm your current address and your new home address.
Go to the post office and arrange for mail to be forwarded to your new address.
Cancel newspaper subscriptions, cable TV service, telephone and garbage collection.
Talk to the title officer, your lawyer, and your agent to verify that all necessary paperwork will be ready for your closing.
Pick up or have a faxed copy of your estimated closing costs from the closing officer, you're entitled to it by law. Check to make sure all fees, tax adjustments, and other charges are correct (Nancy will also be checking on these details as your agent.). Gather all the documents you are expected to bring to the closing meeting
When you leave for the closing, make sure you have any documents your mortgage company may have asked you to bring (including your settlement statement from your previously sold house), your driver's license or pictured I.D., and all house keys and garage door openers. After the closing is completed, call you insurance agent and cancel your homeowner's policy to coincide with the day you are giving up possession of the house.
