You can sign it over to us at closing. Any difference between your check and actual closing costs will be adjusted at closing by a personal check or refund. (Bring your checkbook also)
  • If you are using the proceeds from the sale of another property for all or part of the cash required at closing, a check from another title company is also acceptable
