Basic list/reminder to go over for moving checking account to a new bank; E.G., :
"Ware recommends doing this in person, if possible. That way you'll walk away with proof your account is closed and the bank won't attempt to tack on charges later or report you to ChexSystems for unpaid items.
You'll want to be sure all checks written from the account have cleared before taking out the last of your cash, Ware says."
