Witness Closings

What to Know About Witness Closings

What do you do when it’s time to finalize a real estate purchase, but the property is a significant distance away? Do you pay for the expense of traveling to a central location to meet with the parties involved? You can, but you don’t have to—that’s where witness closings come to rescue. 


What is a Witness Closing?

A witness closing is frequently used when buyers and sellers live long distances from each other and want to avoid the time and expense of travel. It’s also become more popular due to the COVID-19 pandemic, when parties need to maintain a safe distance for public safety. 

Witness closings are a way for final paperwork to be signed in the presence of a notary signing agent and funds to be dispersed without a buyer and seller being in the same location.


What to Expect During the Process

A notary signing agent comes to you and the seller to sign all documents, and they take care of any disbursements. In fact, closing documents can be brought directly to your home or they can be mailed to you, and you sign them with a notary present and send them back.
