Some of the functions of a title closer include, but are not limited to, verification of correct amounts due and owing to satisfy mortgages, taxes, judgments and other liens, properly recording legal documents, and instruments from the transaction, checking and verifying that all documents are prepared and executed in legal and recordable form, notarizing papers and documents, and assisting many of the parties to insure accuracy in calculations of adjustments. Taking accurate and detailed notes is essential in case the events of the transactions become subject to audit.
