As a buyer, the purchasing process is an exciting time, but it can also seem overwhelming. Our office is here to help make the process less daunting.
In Louisiana the buyer reserves the right to select the title company. The title company will handle all of the paperwork and make sure that the seller is the rightful owner of the house you are buying. The title company works with your lender to prepare and finalize closing documents. Once cleared to close, you sign your closing documents at the title company’s office and then you own the home!
As soon as you have an executed contract, you can engage our office. By contacting us as soon as you are under contract, we are able to process your file with adequate time.
Simply tell your lender or real estate professional that you’d like Audubon Title to handle your closing and we will take care of the rest!

Funds for Closing
All closing funds must be in the form of certified funds or cashier’s check made payable to Audubon Title or must be wired to our escrow account.
To obtain certified funds or a cashier’s check, you must go to your financial institution or bank and request funds to be withdrawn from your account in the form of certified funds payable to Audubon Title.
However, we always recommend contacting your bank or financial institution to confirm their process.
The process of sending a wire is specific to your financial institution – some banks require requests to be made in person, have a 24-48-hour processing time, have limits on how much can be wired and much more. If you intend to send funds by wire, please contact your bank as soon as you are under contract to verify their process, this is to avoid last minute funding issues or delay in closing.
