INDUSTRY NEWS EFFECTIVE JANUARY 14, 2014 - HUD BUYER SELECT PROGRAM

In designated areas HUD is now allowing buyers to select their own Closing Agent. Each closing agent must be approved by HUD and issued a HUD BUYER SELECT TITLE ID#. Please click the links below for fillable BUYER SELECT ADDENDUMS for each of the following locations:

 


INDUSTRY CHANGES EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2013 – Senate Bill 370

 

  • 1) All title companies doing business in Indiana MUST file their forms (policies & endorsements) and rates with the Indiana Department of Insurance (“IDOI”). The new statute does not allow for deviation from the rate sheets or forms filed by the underwriter. The IDOI has instructed all title companies that only filed forms and filed rates may be used for real estate closings in Indiana on or after July 1, 2013 even if different rates were quoted prior to July 1, 2013.

    2) All title companies must issue Closing Protection letters (“CPLs”) on every residential transaction closed by an underwriter or its agent. The CPL is optional for parties in commercial transactions. All parties in the residential transaction – lender, buyer/borrower, and seller must receive a CPL. The new law requires a fee to be charged for each CPL letter issued. Indiana is one of nineteen states that have enacted CPL legislation.

Testimonials
"Ok – I just want to vent to “my team” for a moment….. My buyer “accepted” going to another title company for closing. Should have closed last Friday but lender didn’t have it ready due to a major change in purchase price because appraisal didn’t support original purchase price. Now, we get the CTC on Wednesday of this week and lender says we can close on Friday. Package has been delivered. HOWEVER, the title company CAN’T /WON’T fit us in and says we have to wait until Monday. Now, mind you, the Seller’s agent closes all his homes at this title company but yet they won’t even call me back or return my emails when I am begging and pleading for my Buyer to get her home prior to the weekend…. UGH! I know we are all busy –and I know there are only so many hours in a day. However….I also KNOW that CT would fit me in somewhere even if we had to close in the lobby with Lynn running between 2 closings or Gina doing it… Ok… I am done now. My Buyer has begged me to change the closing to “my title company” – but I just can’t do that now…. Even you guys aren’t that magical ? Dreaming of my next closing with CT and to NEVER close with these bunch ever again!!! Have a wonderful Friday!"

"I just want to thank you for the “over the top” job you did on helping get my listing on White Horse Lane closed successfully today. I know it was a very confusing transaction – especially not knowing from minute to minute if it was going to close. My clients and I wish to thank you for your patience and excellent work on making this successful for everyone!"

"The purpose of this email is to compliment Chicago Title's Greenwood Office staff. Kelli Baugh was at the closing and she was excellent, taking the time to carefully, and in easily understood terms, answer questions about the mortgage, closing documents, etc. She was positive, upbeat, and supportive. The rest of the team that supported this closing also gave fantastic customer service. Susan at the front desk, Erin, Amy, and Ingrid all had parts in this closing at some point during the process between the purchase agreement date and the actual closing. Each staff person was friendly and helpful. The service given was top notch."

"I just wanted to let you know again how awesome your office has been for me. Pam handled a delicate closing for me this morning. She is just spectacular when it comes to handling these types of situations. The fact I know I have another person on my side in my closings means so much to me. I know I've told you before, but I appreciate to no end the fact that my title work and closings are never a concern. Of all the things throughout the loan process that make me sweat, your Avon office continues to be a rock."

formerly with JP Morgan Chase


"Most generally, I don’t write letters of recommendations, I probably should more often. However, I can’t let Kitsy’s excellent customer service pass by without giving her a shout out. We closed on a property through you in June of this past year. It was a property that has been split from an original plat twice the size of what we bought. IN getting the permits and variances that we’ve needed to build, I’ve had 3 separate occasions that the Morgan County Recorder’s Office told me that the papers needed were not recorded. The first was the deed itself when we applied for our builder’s permit. Of course, I didn’t know anything about, assuming it was recorded after the closing. Kitsy, provided me with the article number and a copy of the recorded deed for my records. The second time was a “driveway agreement” document that provided easement to/from a gravel drive that ran parallel with our property. This time, we stood before the planning and zoning department and they said that the agreement was never recorded and they had no record of it. Again, Kitsy, replied within that business day, providing me with the agreement and the article number proving it was recorded. The last was today, when I finally got the permit, and the variance and needed to record a separate break-away parcel within my plat to record the legal description. The auditor’s office said they couldn’t do it because the original survey breaking out our land was never recorded with their office. Needless to say, Kitsy provided me with the information I needed within a few hours. All I can say is I am super impressed with her record keeping and prompt and accurate customer service. She’s one of the best. Thank you!"

"I want to tell you what a wonderful job Sara did with helping with both of the closings on Chaseway and Fordham. It was such a comfort to know that I had someone of her caliber taking care of us at Chicago."
Susan Taylor

"The Carmel Team, Jim, Jen, & Courtney have been great! I recently had a personal issue come up and they accommodated a request to move a closing to Fishers at the last minute. I am tremendously grateful and appreciate all that everyone helps me with to run my business smoothly! Kuddos!"

"The job you did yesterday was absolutely phenomenal. The presentation was polished and professional yet easy to understand without being elementary. The Powerpoint was completely professional and the handouts matched it perfectly. As I stood behind and watched to monitor what my agents were doing during the presentation, I was terribly pleased to see they were busy taking additional notes and working to absorb the information. That’s quite remarkable given that it was an hour in length! In summary, I feel most fortunate to have had Chicago Title providing this educational opportunity for my agents and have already started spreading the word about what a first class job you did."

Carpenter Realtors


"This was our first transaction on the listing side with Chicago Title and I was very impressed. Not only have you been fabulous, but I was blown away by the service we received from Toni. This was not an easy close, as there were alot of issues to address on the title work and she was always right on top of things! She was very easy to reach, always willing to help in any way that she could and I was most impressed by the constant contact she made with myself and my client in giving us updates. My client was very happy with the service and my apprehension of switching title companies is gone! Thank you so much for all of the hard work from everyone at Chicago Title. I look forward to doing much more business with all of you!"
