Is there any way I can see copies of the documents I will be signing at the closing beforehand?
Yes. Your lender will send you a Closing Disclosure. By law, you must receive your Closing Disclosure at least three business days before your closing. You can call your lender prior to closing on your mortgage and request copies of the other documents you will be signing.
The CFPB has resources to help you review your closing documents:
- Our interactive guide to the Closing Disclosure helps you double-check the details and get definitions for unfamiliar terms.
- Our guide to closing forms helps you spot what to look for in your promissory note, mortgage (security instrument), initial escrow disclosure, and right to cancel.
- Our closing checklist helps you know what to expect at closing and what questions to ask.
