The question is a little vague but keep the following in mind:
1) You must get homeowner's insurance on the home you are purchasing before the bank will allow you to close.
2) You have the right as a buyer to do a "final walk-through" prior to the closing to make sure the condition of the house is the same that is was when you had first viewed the house.
3) You will need to transfer all the utilities on the property into your name (water, gas, electric). If the tenants pay their own then you do not have to worry about theirs.
4) If there are tenants in the house you should put together new leases spelling out all the terms of the rental.
5) Bring your photo ID and your checkbook with you to the closing.
These are the main ones that come to mind but there are many more to consider. Your attorney should be advising you about that (I assume you have an attorney). If I can be of further assistance please let me know. Good luck!
