Stand Alone Modification endorsement/Stand Alone Endorsement (SAE)

  • The SAE is an alternative product created to meet the needs of servicing customers. Insures the continued priority of existing loans whose terms were now being modified. The Lender no longer needs to obtain subordination from the Jr. Lien holder.
  • Authority to issue the endorsement even if the loan policy insuring the original mortgage/deed of trust was issued by another underwriter. In that regard, unlike other policy endorsements this particular endorsement is considered to "stand alone".
  • The endorsement insures the Insured against loss sustained or incurred by reason of (1) any invalidity or unenforceability of the mortgage resulting from the execution of the modification; (2) any defect or encumbrance first appearing in the public records between the underlying loan policy date and the recording date of the modification; and (3) any loss of priority resulting from the recording of any junior mortgage, deed of trust or other voluntary lien in the public records between the underlying loan policy date and the recording date of the modification.

Traveling Closings

Traveling real estate closings began in the major coastal cities in the late 1990's. Today, most residential closings take place in the buyers and seller's homes and/or office versus the inside of old fashioned title companies.

Most local title companies require sellers and buyers to come to their office between 9-5, Monday-Friday only.

In Nations Title, we meet the buyers and sellers where it is convenient for them and at a time which is possible within their busy schedules. As a result, closings take place all over the country, and many times after hours or on weekends.

Modern technology makes traveling closings the most convenient way to close real estate sales.

Nations Title also handles split closings where spouses are in travel, or even deployed as military personnel overseas, by having a nationwide network of trained closers who travel for Nations Title.
