Do I need to read all of the documents at closing?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Although you are certainly entitled to do so, the documents are typically long and technical. Consequently, most people prefer not to read them. Your attorney has reviewed documents of this nature many times, is aware of their content and purpose and is aware of what to look for that might be of concern or importance to you. Most people choose to rely on the experience and expertise of their attorney to review the closing papers, explain their purpose, and address any questions or concerns that might be appropriate.
