CAPITOL TITLE will use this time to diligently process all of the items listed below to ensure a smooth transaction.

  • Order and review Title Search
  • Order and review a House Location Survey*
  • Obtain Seller's payoff figures
  • Contact HOA or Condo management company
  • Prepare Title Insurance binder for the Lender
  • Obtain current property tax information
  • Schedule convenient time and place for settlement and coordinate with all parties
  • Prepare settlement documents including final settlement statement

*A location drawing is generally satisfactory for the purpose of either a purchase or a refinance and complies with your purchase agreement and/or mortgage lender's requirements. Effective March 1, 1995, State Regulations require Maryland purchasers provide approval to the title company to furnish a “location survey” as opposed to a more comprehensive, yet more expensive, “boundary survey.” Please contact our office for more details.
