  eClosings: The Emerging New Era
 
Richard Bramhall; James M. Czapiga; Tucker Dulong
 
With lenders, home buyers, GSEs (including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), and other stakeholders seeking ways to save time, reduce costs, and increase efficiency, the landscape of a traditional residential real estate closing is transforming. From the borrower’s initial loan application through, and including, recording and post-closing, it is now possible in many jurisdictions to complete a transaction without generating a single piece of paper. Several states have enacted legislation permitting remote online notarization, which allows the signor and notary to be in different locations during an acknowledgement.  In this session, we will discuss the practical and legal implications of this shift towards eClosings and what this will mean for your practice in the future.
