|**Is it true what one of the other replys say can you request them to send the documents by a certain time?**|
It's true, but even requesting them by a certain hour won't guarantee that you will get them.
You haven't said where you are located. If you are are the west coast and the loans are coming from the east coast, that may give you some time. However, if you are both on the east coast and you have to leave at 7:00 a.m., that won't help you at all, because no one will probably even be in the loan office until 8:00 to finish the docs. Many times with e-docs, you don't get them until after the appointed signing time.
