To our valued customers,
For the time being, Liberty/Zing Title will remain open and we will continue to search titles and close deals. While we recognize the seriousness of this global pandemic, we also understand the need to continue with real estate closings as scheduled, as they are an extremely important part of our economy. We all need to work together to keep things moving, while putting a greater emphasis on “flattening the curve” and taking serious measures to try and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Currently, there are no government-imposed restrictions that would prevent closings from occurring at Liberty/Zing Title. While some Registers of Deeds/county clerk’s offices have temporarily closed, we have made arrangements with our underwriters to continue with closings and policy issuance.
The Fed Wire, remote banking services, and most lenders are open for business. We are receiving closing packages and processing in order to keep your closing on schedule. We represent the five largest title insurers in the country and so we are a confident we will find a way to close and insure your deals.
“Contactless closings” are our main focus right now, that is, we are focused on limiting time at the closing table, utilizing our full suite of digital tools to keep closings as remote as possible, and ensuring that our office locations are as clean and safe as possible. We will work with you and your clients to make sure every available tool, from email to wire transfers to DocuSign, is utilized to better ensure that all parties are safe. We are working with two industry-leading remote online notarization vendors to make this service available to you and your clients as soon as possible. Our team has received instructions on maintaining “social distancing” and sanitization. We are regularly cleaning and disinfecting our offices, with closing rooms and public areas cleaned after every closing.
We will keep you updated with any new developments. Please feel free to contact us, one of our office managers, or one of our account executives with any questions or concerns.
Wishing you the best in health,
Michele & Tom Richardson
