Sun City Center Title Company and Insurance Questions.

1.) When can you tell me the amount of funds required to close escrow?

Upon receipt of your loan documents and preparation of your escrow instruction, the title company will contact your real estate agent and/or you to let you know the amount of funds you will need to close escrow

2.) When do I get my keys?

At the close of escrow your real estate agent will contact you regarding the disbursement of the keys. Usually this is on the possession date.

3.) How much time should I allow for my signing appointment?

A signing can take any where from 30 minutes up to 2 hours, however, the average signing involves 35-45 minutes for your appointment.

4.) When should I shop for homeowners/fire insurance?

We always recommend you start shopping for homeowners/fire insurance prior to closing, but as soon as your offer is accepted you should have insurance in place. You should always know details such as the age of your home when you shop for insurance.

5.) What will I need to take to the Title Company when I go in to sign my papers?

You will need to bring your cashier’s check payable to Southbay Title Company, Inc. (if the amount was given to you previously). Bring a valid driver’s license, Florida I.D. card, valid passport or Military I.D.

6.) When will I get my deed showing proof of ownership?

The day escrow closes is the day the deed records with the county and you become the owner of your home. It could take 6-10 weeks from that date for the county to mail you the original signed/recorded deed.
