Before the closing date, the buyer should receive the Clear to Close from their mortgage lender, which signifies that their mortgage has been approved and the closing can be scheduled by the Title Company.
After the Title Company schedules the closing date, time, and location, the buyer’s Realtor will arrange for a final walk-through of the property. Typically, this inspection takes place a day before or immediately prior to the closing and ensures that the property is still in good condition, any necessary repairs have been made, and all agreed-upon items like shelving, light fixtures, and curtain rods are still present.
It’s important to note that in Louisiana, all attached items must remain with the property and be transferred to the buyer. Therefore, it’s essential for the buyer to check that all of these items are still in place.
