Here are key reminders as you prepare to close on your new home with Muncie, Mattson, & Gunter, P.C.

Closing Checklist

To avoid any last-minute issues, it’s important to:

  • Verify the closing appointment date and time. In person closings occur at our office located at 987 Drew Lane in Auburn, Alabama.
  • Review the closing disclosure or settlement statement in advance.
  • Bring a valid photo ID to closing for identification purposes.
  • Bring funds to close in an acceptable form, such as a cashier’s check or wire transfer. We advise our clients to initiate the wire twenty-four (24) to forty-eight (48) hours in advance of closing. This will ensure funds are available to disburse at closing and keys to the home will be provided. In light of the increasing risk of wire fraud, we highly recommend that you verify any wire instructions before initiating a transfer to our office. To ensure your safety and the security of your funds, please contact our office directly, using a known and trusted phone number, to confirm the accuracy of the wire instructions you receive.
