Congratulations! You’ve just closed on the purchase of your new home! Here is a helpful list of important to-dos and reminders for after closing:
- A copy of the recorded Warranty Deed
that transferred title of the property will be sent to you via email with your Owner’s Title Policy approximately one month after closing. Your Owner’s Title Policy should be printed and stored for safe keeping and/or saved on your personal computer.
- It is the taxpayer’s responsibility to be certain the property is rendered in the current taxpayer’s name
for the upcoming tax year. Contact the County Appraisal District (CAD) for assistance in making certain this is done.
- Make certain to file your homestead designation with the County Appraisal District.
If you have any questions about your homestead exemption for property tax purposes, or any other exemption which may be available to you, please contact your County Appraisal District. The forms necessary to apply for exemptions are available online from your Appraisal District at no cost. See the reverse side of this card for area County Appraisal District’s website and contact information.
- Contact the Home Warranty company if you received a home warranty and want additional coverage.
If you received a Home Warranty (also known as a Residential Service Contract) in connection with your recent closing and wish to add additional coverage, please contact the Home Warranty company directly.
