Dominion Title Services remains OPEN FOR BUSINESS and we are continually monitoring the latest developments and guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”), as well as federal, state and local authorities. The health and welfare of our employees, business partners and customers are at the center of all decisions we are making at this critical time.
In order to continue to serve your title insurance and escrow services and to ensure the health and safety of our employees, business partners and customers, we have taken the following steps:
We are monitoring federal and state authorities as they work diligently to pass necessary regulations to speed up the use of remote online notarization (“RON”), which will allow a signer and notary public to use interactive two-way audio and video communication technology to notarize the signer’s electronic signature on electronic documents. We will keep you informed as to any progress with this needed process.
Also, we are monitoring closures in several counties to determine if searching and recording documents will be affected which may delay turn time and/or the ability to close transactions in those counties. These issues remain very fluid but the relevant authorities understand the importance of real estate transactions to our economy and we anticipate they will work through these issues with that goal in mind.
These uncertain times require patience and perseverance and we thank you for your continued trust in our dedicated staff at Dominion Title Services. Please contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
