What do I keep and what do I shred?

Documents related to the purchase of your home, including your settlement sheet, your promissory note, home inspection report, and title insurance policy are some important things you should keep.

Documents like a deed, homestead, and mortgage are public records and can be freely accessed in most counties in Massachusetts. No need to save hard copies.

For a refinance, the discharge document is the most important to keep on file.

Utilize scanning to keep your documents digital!
