Lau's Corner & Title Tips
Post-closing updates have ALWAYS:
- been important;
- been a requirement as a Title Agent;
- been an obligation to your client(s); and
have NEVER been more important than in the COVID world. Click here to view some of the common issues we are finding.
In person post-closing updates should be done within 45 days of closing or, for closed offices within 10 days after clerk re-opens.
Attention VATC Title Update Users: Please submit your update requests promptly after the transaction has closed and funded.
CATIC Back Title
Back title is provided to assist you in your work on the property described in the policy, or on property relevant to your request.
When requesting prior policies (back title) we require that it be used by your firm only in the preparation and issuance of additional CATIC policies. It may not be used to issue policies underwritten by our competitors. Additionally, if you do not have an “exact” match and you are working in a subdivision, condominium or planned community, please remember to take your search back to the developer and bring it forward for the unit/lot being searched.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions, please call our office. Thank you.
