I assume you already have a written contract. If not, figure that out right away. Googling may be okay but each state has a few of their own quirky laws. Anything is better than nothing.

where I live, the buyer hires the title company or attorney. Seller prepares and submits a deed to them a week or a few days prior to closing. --72.70.xxx.xx

Call the title company. They will handle everything. They also generally have purchase and sale agreements in house that cover state required clauses, etc. Their lawyers review it all.

Be careful if the buyer uses their own agreement. If they do, have title company or better yet, your lawyer review it.

Get the money into the title company's escrow account immediately. If the buyer want's to put up a deposit and the rest at closing, make it a large deposit and non refundable. As it is non refundable, have the title company pay the deposit to you immediately, or the day any contingencies clear. If you leave the money in their account and anything happens, the buyer might be able to tie it up somehow and there is a possibility that you will not get it.

Be sure that the buyer is not just trying to flip the contract because if they are and they cannot find a new buyer, they might walk from the deal and try to get their deposit back. That's one reason for making the deposit non refundable and as large as possible, preferably over 10 percent and 20 percent is better. Don't let the buyer tie it up with a hundred dollars. --24.180.xx.xx
