Life of a File with Mindy Hallford

Have you ever wondered what happens to your contract once it is delivered to the title company? Let our Closer walk you through the life of the file from the title company side. We will cover topics and questions such as:

What does my closer look for on the contract?
HOA, home warranty, payoff statements, oh my!
Where does the commitment come from, and what do all of those document numbers mean?
The lender says title has closing instructions, why don’t I have a settlement statement yet?
The lender said they sent docs, why aren’t we ready to sign yet?
My client has signed, what’s the hold up on getting keys to them?
Are we funded? What does it mean when I get the email saying we’ve funded?
When will the title policy be issued to my client?

We will be sure to allow time for Q & A along the way, so please bring your questions.
