Post Closing Guide

Post Closing Guide

Congratulations on closing your new home! While the keys are in your hands, the journey of homeownership is just beginning. Amplicity's Post Closing Guide is designed to assist you through the transition from homebuyer to homeowner, ensuring that you're prepared for the next steps after closing on your property.

Immediate Post-Closing Actions

  • Document Safeguarding: Securely store all your closing documents. These are important for your records, future tax filings, and as references for any post-closing queries.

  • Utilities and Services: Confirm that all utilities have been transferred to your name. It's also a good time to set up or transfer services such as internet, cable, and home security systems.

  • Home Maintenance Review: Review the property inspection report for any maintenance recommendations. Prioritize any immediate needs that were identified.

  • Lock Replacement: For added security, consider replacing the locks on all exterior doors. You never know how many spare keys are floating around with the previous owner's acquaintances.

Short-Term Post-Closing Tasks

  • Home Insurance Policy: Ensure your homeowner's insurance policy is active and that you understand your coverage. It's also a good moment to file away your policy with your other important documents.

  • Property Tax Dates: Note down key property tax dates and amounts. This will help you budget accordingly and avoid any late fees.

  • Warranty Registrations: If your home comes with warranties on appliances or systems, make sure to register these to keep them active.

Long-Term Considerations

  • Maintenance Schedule: Develop a home maintenance schedule. Regular upkeep can prevent costly repairs down the line and help maintain your home's value.

  • Emergency Fund: Start or continue to grow an emergency fund for unforeseen home repairs. As a homeowner, you're responsible for all maintenance and repairs, and they can sometimes be unexpected and expensive.

  • Community Integration: Take the time to integrate into your new community. This could include meeting neighbors, joining local groups or community associations, and updating your voter registration.
