About the Event
This Thursday the leaders of 12th Floor Group, along with featured guests Shane Hartzler, Fannie Mae, and Mac Chiles, Black Knight, will offer their unique perspectives on the current state of closings in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. There is a lot of misinformation out there, so join the dialogue to learn what we're seeing on the ground and how we are working to influence legislative decisions that affect the closing and settlement process. Additionally, we will discuss:
Real Estate as essential critical infrastructure (essential function per executive orders)
- E-Closings and other closing alternatives during social distancing
- Register of Deeds and courthouse closed - what to do
- Verification of employment and income if employer is closed
- Disbursement of funds, earnest money, and broker commissions
- How LPOA's work in these circumstances
- Video closing: fact or fiction?
- Appraisers: are they essential?
The leaders of our group have gone through every type of disaster in the digital age and each time have come out on the other side with greater knowledge and capabilities. We will get through this unprecedented situation, but we need the support of each of our communities and we need to work together to share ideas and help move solutions forward.
