The Closing is the date that the home will actually be changing hands. The closing meeting will usually take place either in the Closing Attorney’s office or at the Registry of Deeds. Many Sellers will give their Attorney “Power of Attorney if it is inconvenient to attend the closing. Your check will usually be held by the Attorney until the property has been recorded at the Registry of Deeds and has gone “on record”.
Getting the property “on record” can take anywhere from an hour to multiple hours depending on how busy the registry is that day. The Closing Attorney will arrange for this to be done either in person at the Registry or now it can also be done online. End of month closings will take the longest to go to record since there are usually more closings scheduled.
