In July of 2020, Indiana signed into law Senate Bill 340 which requires both an acknowledgment and a proof. It has come to our attention that Lake County, IN specifically requires the proof to be on a separate page. Due to this, First American Docutech has created a new field (“Print Witness Proof on Separate Page”, Field 142834) that will ensure the proof prints on a separate page. For Lake County, this setting will be triggered on a generic basis. If other counties conform that they require the proof to be separate, we will update the global mapping to include that county.
Note that this will not make a difference for loans where the pages/acknowledgments/proofs are already breaking in such a way that the Witness Proof is printing on a separate page. This new functionality only makes sure that a page separation occurs for the Witness Proof.
The documents that are being updated are as follows:
- IN Mortgage (Cx324)
- IN Mortgage Second (Cx482)
- HELOC Mortgage – IN (Cx1381)
- FHA IN Mortgage (Cx19372)
