Ask your lawyer for a draft settlement statement before they’re issued to the buyers for settlement. If you can’t understand the draft statement easily and quickly, then your buyers will have no hope! Remember that when the settlement statement is received by the buyer’s lawyers they will be on forwarded to the buyers. The buyers will go through their statement counting every dollar. By ensuring that the settlement statement is easy to read and understand you will cut down the number of questions to you after settlement. You’ll also have happy buyers.
