If you have come this far, then this means that it is almost time for a congratulations, but not yet. Do not forget to tie up these loose ends:
More of a formality than anything else, the final walk-through takes place just before closing. You will visit the property to verify that all is in working order, everything is the same as when you last viewed the property, that there are no extra items left behind, and that everything included in your purchase is still at the property. In the event you are not able to be available for a final walk-through, then it is important to check the property on the day of closing. If there are any issues inform your lawyer immediately.

There will be a statement of adjustments that will be provided to you prior to closing, which outlines all the various additional closing costs that you must pay. If you are obtaining financing, you will have to sign all pertinent documentation required by the lending institution.
