Why do you wait until the day before closing to tell me how much I need for the closing? The reason for that as the closing agent is we do not have the information or we don’t have the amount. This is usually associated with Europe, obtaining a mortgage through a financial institution. They don’t finalize their figures as to how much money you need to bring for closing as a result of getting financing and how much money they’re going to supply less their closing costs. So we cannot determine the amount that you need to have prior to the day before closing, if you would like to wire an amount which may be an excess of what you need and get a refund. Well, you need to ask the closing agent for that figure, and we’d be pleased to give it to you if you want the exact figure.
However, we wound up waiting until the last minute or the day before closing, because the lender doesn’t give us all finalized , what they call the closing disclosure form. The final closing disclosure form until the day before closing on a cash transaction, you should be able to get that information ahead of time, unless it’s a very quick closing and we do not have all of the information in as far as, taxes or liens or something such as that, but an a cash closing, you should be able to know how much you need to send them prior to closing. Of course, we do require all wires to be sent or the money be wired for closings. if you have any questions, give me a call at (727) 847-2288.
