A single closing record can have multiple closing parties.  Closing parties can include multiple buyers and sellers, listing and selling agents, and other parties such as insurance representatives or property inspectors.

You can add a closing party from your contact database or if you will be dealing with a closing party only once, you can add a closing party and have it not added to your database.

  1. Open the Closing Parties tab. From the Main Menu bar, go to Listings & Closings and select Closings Summary.
  2. Click the Closing you would like to open; the closing record will then open.

The Common Closing Parties list is a collection of contacts that are often involved when you are dealing with a closing such as mortgage brokers or property inspectors. All of the contacts that are part of the Common Closing Parties list exist in your contact database as well.   Adding them to the Common Closing Parties list makes it easier to find and add them when you’re creating or editing a closing record.  For more information on Adding a Common Closing Party see Adding Contacts to the Common Closing Party List.

Note: The Add Closing Agent link is only available on team or partnership accounts. To add agents when you are not on a team account, enter the agent as a contact in your database and then add the agent as a common closing party.
