Didn't turn off iCloud before sale

Quick question...I totally forgot to turn off iCloud in System Prefs on my MBA before I sold it. I did however erased the drive and installed a fresh copy of Mountain Lion after the erase.

Is it going to be a problem with the new owner once he gets the MBA?

I didn't shut if off thinking I was still using my iPad mini and iPhone 5

Can someone link me to where I take this computer off my apple account. I can't find it anywhere and it's bothering me knowing I might of messed up.

Any info is appreciated thanks

When you erased your computer and reinstalled Mac OS X it erased your iCloud account, so the computer doesnt have any of your info on it, if you want to erase your computer from the online iCloud.com just go to iCloud.com log in and click find my iPhone, then select devices and select your macbook air, it should say offline after you click on it and at the bottom you can click remove from Find my iPhone. That should be it.
