Finally your process of buying a Los Angeles home is over. You are just about to close escrow and are ready to move in.
- Change all the utilities into your name, and make sure the seller has remembered to cancel their service. Here are some of the numbers you will need
- Make sure to change the locks on the day of close of escrow.
- If you bought the home with cash, be sure that your insurance is in place.
- Order your change of address through the post office at least 10 days in advance. It takes that time and often longer to take effect.
Congratulations, and enjoy your new home.
