The documents required are on the Seller Checklist and are below for your information: Click Here for the seller document upload area(you can send this to the seller)

Seller Documents to Provide:

  •            a. – Power of attorney: from seller.  Download Seller Power Of Attorney
  •            b. – Loan payoff statement– Interest accrues daily, so we need a loan payoff statement that is good for 15 days. This will allow the time needed for Southeast Financial to issue payment to the seller’s lender. Typically the seller makes the request for the loan payoff and provides the payoff statement to the buyer. Due to privacy laws, Southeast Financial cannot do this. It must have the following items: seller name, account number, overnight payoff address(no PO boxes), collateral, and per diem per day.
  •            c. – Southeast Financial authorization to payoff formThis form will be sent to the seller’s lender along with the loan payoff check that will be issued by Southeast Financial. The authorization for payoff form informs the seller’s lending institution that the seller has authorized his/her loan to be paid off and that the title of the unit being held as collateral on the loan should be sent to Southeast Financial. Download Authorization To Payoff Form
