January, 2017
  • After a confusing discussion with WFG National Title Insurance Company, we determined that the signature blocks on their policy jackets from their web site were different than the ones on the Landtech WFG merge forms. The solution that we agreed on was to remove the signature blocks from the Landtech WFG merge forms and replace them with just the signature of the Agent. The revised forms are on the WFG menu on the site. As usual, Subscribers to landtechforms.com can have the forms on their system replaced by us remotely at no additional charge.
December, 2016
  • An LLC “Corporate” Resolution form has been added to the Corporate Seller menu.

The HUD Acknowledgement and Receipt can be used for individuals and entities, the other 2 documents are for individuals only.
October, 2016
  • Both the Florida Attorneys’ Fund Services “Express” Owners and Mortgage policy forms have been completed and uploaded to the ATFS menu. These forms are to be used when issuing title policies at the table. You will have to get the jackets from the Fund web site because the Fund does not provide an integration with Landtech or other closing software.
  • The separate Closing Disclosure Signature Page in the Landtech Document Editor which can be selected to print simultaneously with the CD has been revised to merge long name and corporate signature lines better. This also resulted in improved positioning of the signature lines for individuals.
September, 2016
  • Florida title policies for all underwriters were calculating the Premiums using the CFPB Disclosure amount, instead of the State of Florida Disclosure amount, so all Florida title policy templates have been modified and are now available for download from each underwriter’s menu. It seems either amount can be disclosed but we feel that displaying the actual amounts charged to each party rather than a figure dreamt up by the CFPB regulations would make life easier for all.
  • A Condominium Sufficient Funds Affidavit has been added to the Sales Docs menu to send to Condominium Management Associations to fill out.

Attorneys’ Title Fund Services, LLC is a servicing company issuing title policies and endorsements under the license of Old Republic National Title Insurance Company.
  • A First Lien Refusal letter has been uploaded to the Florida Miscellaneous menu. This letter can be sent to the Lender stating that you are unable to issue their First Lien Letter request because of the prohibition in Section 14(a) of the title policy form.
