Four ways to prepare for your Crites Title Closing

It's important to bring a current picture ID to closing, i.e., driver’s license, passport. If you are not certain that your identification card will be valid for your transaction, please call us prior to closing.

Illinois has a good funds law. A cashier’s check is required for a cash need from $501 to $49,999; a wire transfer is required for a cash need of $50,000 or more.

If you are scheduled to wire money, always be on the lookout for wire fraud. Our team uses Closinglock to protect our clients from wire fraud. Closinglock is an easy-to-use software solution that will ensure our customers that their wire transfers are done safely and securely. Please contact our office at the beginning of your transaction and inquire how we use Closinglock to protect your money. Do not rely on wiring instructions received from anyone except Closinglock, especially through unsolicited email.

Remote Online Notarization or RON, is the process of applying the notary’s electronic signature and notarial seal to an electronic document. Please contact our office to inquire how we can facilitate your next eClosing.
