Possession Date of Your Bonita Springs Home
Your listing agent can help you understand all of the critical days, dates and time as it relates to the sale of your Bonita Springs property. Unless otherwise negotiated, the day of closing belongs to the buyer. The seller’s possessions must be moved out of the home before that date, unless otherwise negotiated.
A day or so before the date of close the buyer’s agent will accompany or in the place of the buyer perform the final walk through to check the condition and contents of the property. The seller’s possessions may still be on site at that time. The check of the final condition may also be a check of final home inspection repair remediation, as well. Seller’s are responsible to keep the real estate in the condition as seen on the day that the contract was agreed upon and they are also responsible to keep the utilities on; typically Florida Power and Light and Bonita Springs Utilities for water and sewer.
On the day of closing or the day prior, the listing agent will be turning over the keys to the title company. The buyers will have possession to the home or condo as soon as the documents are signed and the funds have been received. The closing documents may be arriving by mail or have already arrived prior to the closing date so closing could be as early as the time the title company or real estate attorney office is open.
