Pursuant to a review of Maine’s Assignments, we are making the following change:
- The “By” signature line which appears in the top left corner of the document under the Loan Closer’s Name or Broker’s Name has been removed.
This change is compliant with Me. Rev. Stat. Ann. tit. 33, § 651-A:
“A name may be typed or printed under a signature at the registry of deeds by the person bringing the instrument to the registry, as long as the name is typed or printed on the instrument prior to the certification on the instrument under section 653 of the time when the instrument was received.”
The ME Assignments this change applies to are:
- ME Assignment of Mortgage (Cx1529)
- ME Assignment from MERS (Cx4325)
- ME Assignment – INV BLANK (Cx4469)
These changes will take effect on May 23, 2017. If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please contact Client Support at 1.800.497.3584.
