WRA LETTER REGARDING "ESSENTIAL BUSINESS"
UNDER GOV. EVERS' ORDER
In response to Gov. Tony Evers' "Safer at Home" executive order issued yesterday, the WRA drafted a letter to all WRA members identifying their status as "essential business" under the order.

While this letter is not a legal document, it is intended to serve as a resource for you to carry with you in case your status is questioned.

WRA FAQ TO 'SAFER AT HOME' ORDER
The WRA legal team has created a list of frequently asked questions relating to Gov. Evers’ Emergency Order #12 "Safer at Home" Order.

Keep in mind due to today's ever-changing world and the "Safer at Home" order, this document will likely be updated on a regular basis to keep you best informed.

STAY SAFE CLOSINGS
Our friend Susan Muller, at Land Title Services, informed us that many title companies have put new policies and procedures in place in order to help protect buyers, sellers, and staff from the coronavirus while continuing to hold closings.

First, they are making social distancing a priority. No one is allowed into the office unless they are a signer. That means no REALTORS®, lenders,... or parents, are even allowed in the lobby.

All signers that come in are asked to wash their hands, they get a brand new pen and are immediately directed to a conference room. Closers will then disinfect the room after each signing.

Susan said, to protect their staff, they will not go to sellers' homes for closings, only to facilities that they know are taking proper measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

They are able to accommodate RON (Remote Online Notarization) closings to allow sellers to sign from home. But, sellers need to have the proper equipment. Susan said they aren't sure if lenders are ready for it yet, but they will be able to do the lenders side soon as well.

While these times are very strange and stressful on many, they hope buyers and sellers can rest assured at the closing table.
