Settlement Agent

Business / Taxes / Settlement Agent: In some states, a settlement agent, or closing agent, handles the real estate transaction when you buy or sell a home. He or she oversees title searches, legal documents, fee payments, and other details of transferring property, acting on your behalf to ensure that the conditions of the contract have been met and appropriate real estate taxes have been paid. A settlement agent also represents you at the closing, so you don’t need to be present.
