Top 10 Post-Closing To-Dos

  • Store closing papers in a safe yet accessible place
    • Safe deposit boxes, in-home safes and locking filing cabinets are only a few options for secure storage.
  • Change the locks
    • Your new home once belonged to someone else. Family members, neighbors and even builders or HOA members may have had keys at one point. Gain peace of mind knowing that your home is secure.
  • Notify the DMV, Post Office and Credit Card Companies
    • Mail forwarding is not permanent, and some third-parties may need personal notification regarding a change of address personally.
  • Locate water shutoff valves and fuse boxes
    • These are likely in a basement, garage or on the exterior of your home.
  • Test and change batteries in smoke detectors
    • If these units don’t include a carbon monoxide detector, it’s advisable to have one on each floor of your house as well.
  • Service HVAC and Fireplaces
    • Vendors may offer more attractive pricing when done “out of season”.
  • Confirm where payments should be sent
    • Not all mortgage companies are long-term servicers. You will receive notification from your lender’s post closing department in advance, and are always recommended to ask your mortgage professional if any questions arise.
  • Prioritize, budget and schedule maintenance projects
    • Address the quick and easy, such as carpet shampooing before moving in, and plan the order in which you will take care of larger projects over time.
  • Meet Your Neighbors
    • Closer knit communities foster well-being, new friendships, and a sense of connection.
  • Enjoy Your New Home!
    • The time has come! Unpack, decorate and relax in your new surroundings!
