Provided all required documentation has been received from the applicant, lender and the title company, settlement can occur after about 15 business days. (A minimum of 10 business days is required in order to receive a check in time for settlement). This timeframe may be extended if we are waiting for documentation or information from your lender or the title company. Be sure to let us know if your settlement date changes so that we can be prepared in time.
