Refinance Closings

At Neighborhood Settlements, we understand the most important service we provide is the assurance that a refinance transaction will close smoothly at a reasonable fee. Our processing is designed with these goals in mind. We will provide lenders and their clients with a single point of contact, which maximizes communication and satisfaction with the refinance experience. We also control our internal expenses far beyond standard fees charged by other title companies - and pass those savings along to the client!
Neighborhood Settlements utilizes a simple philosophy in our closings to maximize your comfort level and to ensure that your transaction closes in an efficient and cost effective manner. We will close your refinance transaction in any manner you believe works best for your situation:

  • Closings held in your home, office or elsewhere at no additional cost
  • Night and weekend closings
  • Attorney and licensed title agents at the closing
  • Telephone Closings (outside Virginia, DC and Maryland - with notary present to witness and notarize loan documents)

At Neighborhood Settlements, lenders can feel confident that we will treat your client with the care and respect that they deserve. Many times the title company is the last contact that your client will have before the close of their transaction. Rest assured that we will provide unparalleled service, giving you the peace of mind that your clients will remain a customer for life.
