If a person is buying or selling a home, it’s a good idea to understand what is going to happen on the closing day. In the state of Utah we use Title Companies. What most people refer to as “closing” is actually called “settlement” for us. Closing occurs after the buyers loan proceed is transferred to title, they pay off all the debt, convey ownership from the seller to buyer, and record everything with the county. One should come to settlement with a personal ID, plan about an hour of time and be ready to sign one’s name a lot.
