Residential Closings for Buyers

The closing process of a residential home purchase is an exciting time for a buyer and their family, but it can also be intimidating if you are not sure what to expect.

Buying a house is one of life’s most significant investments and milestones, but it does not need to be intimidating. Our residential closing lawyers at The Kaloidis Law Firm, LLC, can help explain what to expect when you are buying a home in Waterbury and the surrounding areas. We can help you navigate the process through our sound legal advice and skilled representation.

The Rights and Responsibilities of Buyers in Residential Closings

Buying a home is one of the most important transactions someone can make. It is also one of the most complex. Connecticut buyers should be aware of their rights and responsibilities when it comes to residential closings.

The Rights of Buyers in Residential Closing

When it comes to residential closings, buyers have certain rights that they should be familiar with. First, buyers have the right to know about any defects or deficiencies in the property before the closing takes place. This means that if there are any undisclosed issues with the property, such as structural problems or other defects, buyers should be aware of them before making their purchase decision.

Additionally, buyers have a right to receive an accurate title report prior to closing on the property. This will provide information about any liens, encumbrances, or other legal issues associated with the property that could potentially affect its value or ownership rights.

Buyers also have a right to hire their own attorney for closing proceedings. This is especially important for Connecticut buyers because state law requires that all real estate purchases be handled by an attorney licensed in Connecticut. Having an experienced lawyer by your side throughout this process can help protect your interests and ensure that all legal requirements are met throughout the transaction.

Responsibilities of Buyers in Residential Closings

In addition to being aware of their rights during a residential closing, buyers also need to understand their responsibilities during this time period as well. A key responsibility for buyers is understanding all documents related to the transaction before signing them at closing proceedings.

Understanding all paperwork associated with the purchase agreement and loan documents can help prevent potential problems down the road if there are any discrepancies between what was originally agreed upon versus what was actually signed into law at closing proceedings. 

As your attorney for your home purchase, we will help you navigate these documents. We will explain them to you so that you know what you are signing. We will advise you if we see anything wrong with your closing documents. We will examine your title to the property to ensure that you are buying and receiving everything you expect in the purchase.

What to Expect on Closing Day?

Before the actual closing day, there will be several steps that must take place. These steps typically include obtaining homeowner’s insurance, ordering a survey or title search of the property, obtaining any necessary inspections (such as radon or septic), and obtaining financing if needed. We can walk you through these requirements prior to your closing.

On the day of your closing, you will meet with us to review all documents that explain your rights as a homeowner and explain any financial obligations that are part of the purchase agreement. You will also sign all paperwork required in order to transfer ownership from the seller to you.
