For anyone who may enter our offices or who will be involved in a Drive Up closing, GIT will send out and obtain a simple health screening form and ask that it be filled out and sent back to the local GIT closing office for review and approval prior to the closing.
- We are strongly encouraging the Seller(s) and Buyer(s) to obtain a Power of Attorney from his/her/their respective attorneys to limit or eliminate the need for people at the closing table.
- With the lender’s authorization, GIT will send paperwork to the buyer/borrower and the respective attorney ahead of time to allow time for review and any questions.
- Seller(s) attorney can UPS paperwork to GIT for their closing. GIT will provide UPS Services at no charge
DRIVE UP Purchase CLOSINGS:
- A GIT staff member will meet you at the scheduled time, obtain evidence of a government issued ID, and hand over an envelope only with the pages that require a “wet ink” signature. The client will then need to execute these documents.
- The executed documents will then be taken back to our office for final processing and notarization. We will contact you if there are any further questions.
- Not all closings may qualify for the Drive-Up Closing Services , so please contact your GIT closing office or your GIT Account Manager for further information in order to determine if a closing qualifies for this option.
We are recommending the following in order of preference for refinance closings:
- Drive Up to a GIT Office
- Drive Up at borrower’s home
- Remote Online Notarization where authorized
Drive Up Closing at a Borrower’S HOME
- GIT will send paperwork to the borrowers ahead of time to allow time to review and contact us with questions.
- If all is approved, clients will receive a scheduled appointment time. Our mobile closer will then drive up to the home, obtain evidence of a government issued ID and hand over an envelope only with the pages that require a “wet ink” signature.
- The executed documents will then be taken back to our office for final processing and notarization.
- Not all closings may qualify for the service so please contact your GIT closing office for further information in order to determine if a closing qualifies for this service.
REMOTE ONLINE NOTARIZATION (ron)
- Remote Online Notarization is electronic notarization done by a licensed and commissioned notary public via a secure two-way communication system. Illinois is in the process of studying an emergency executive order to allow a form of RON to facilitate closings
