Can we close, but have a later possession date?Our closing date is suppose to be in a week, but we're able to sign the closing papers this week.Can we finish all the closing papers this week and the take possession next week? Will we have to start paying our mortgage right after we close or is it after we take possession?Reason we're possessing next week is because we have to sign another forms if we're closing early, it usually takes about 1-2 business days for the sellers to answer back because we're buying a relo. So we'd rather not go through that hassle if it's just going to save us 1-2 days.February 01 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
