Closing Tips

Closing Tips

Here are a few ways you can prepare for your closing

Wire money only after you have verbally verified wiring instructions with us by phone or in person. Do not rely on emailed wiring instructions.

Our Wiring instructions will not change.  If you receive information leading you to believe that our wiring instructions have changed, please call or visit our office  immediately; do not initiate any wire until you have talked with us personally.

Bring a current picture I.D. to closing, i.e., driver’s license, passport.  If you are not certain about your form of I.D., please call us prior to closing.

Illinois has a good funds law. A cashier’s check is required for a cash need from $5,000 to $49,999; a wire transfer is required for a cash need of $50,000 or more.  Please contact us if your cash need is less than $5,000.00 to discuss acceptable form of payment.

If you are unable to attend closing, please call us as soon as possible to discuss arrangements to complete your closing documents.

Your spouse may need to come to closing; please call us to verify who is required to attend closing.
