Louisiana requires the following on security instruments submitted for recording:
A. An instrument shall contain the following information when appropriate for its type and nature:
(2) The marital status of all of the parties who are individuals, including the full name of the present spouse or a declaration that the party is unmarried. [La. Civ. Code Ann. art. 3352(A)(2)]
Since co-signers are not parties to the security instrument, document logic has been changed to remove co-signers from the marital status list.
This change impacts the following LA security instruments:
- LA Mortgage (Cx327)
- LA Mortgage Second (Cx485)
- HELOC Mortgage – LA (Cx1356)
- FHA LA Mortgage (Cx19376)
This change will be in effect on October 3, 2017. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please contact Client Support at 1.800.497.3584.
