How late during the day can we close on our mortgage loan? We live in VA

Our attorney is saying we can't close any later than noon in order to get all the paperwork signed and filed appropriately? I've heard of people closing as late as 4:00 p.m. Is there any particular reason as to why we wouldn't be able to close later in the afternoon? Not making sense to me...

The courthouse closes at a certian time and the paperwork can only be recorded at the courthouse while it is open. Since he states "signed and filed" it sounds like the attorney is trying to get your transaction recorded at the courthouse the same day. Sometimes the seller will not turn over the keys until the recordation has taken place. If you close at 4:00, the Deed of Trust will not be able to be recoded until the next business day.
  Hopefully that helps. If not, call the attorney for more clarification.
