Once this is done they will then schedule for funding of the loan. Funding means that the money is sent to the title company. &nbsp;In the state of California, our 'Good Funds Law' requires that all monies arrive at title the day before Close of Escrow. So if your docs were returned Friday and reviewed today, funds 'might' be sent to escrow today, which means that it will close tomorrow. Depending on what your contract says, you should get your keys before 5pm.

Every state may have different laws, but in Washington State the Seller is required to turn over keys no later than 9pm on the day that you "Close". Often they hand over keys after you have "closed" which can occur much earlier in the day. Your transaction is deemed closed when everyone has signed docs, the lender has funded and <u>escrow receives the recording numbers</u> which is confirmation that your docs have recorded (the deed is now legally in your name and you own the property).
