- There are usually closing costs associated at the time of taking possession
of your home. These could include the following (talk to your agent to find
out a more detailed listing):
- Attorney/Lawyer fees (yours and your lenders if applicable)
- Property taxes (to cover tax period to date)
- Title insurance
- Any Documentation preparation fees
Before you sign any closing documents you should have your attorney/lawyer
review your papers and closing documents to ensure your interests are protected.
Your real estate agent might assist you on selecting a lawyer, or you could
find your own.

- Will the lawyer be representing anyone other than you during the transaction?
- Will the lawyer be paid by anyone other than you in the transaction?
