Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Dear colleagues,

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we are reaching out to let you know that Calloway Title and Escrow, LLC offices remain open at this time.  However, the health and safety of our employees and their families is very important to us and we will do what we deem appropriate to keep them safe in the coming weeks.  If the need to close our office occurs, we have remote working capability set up so that we can continue to serve our clients during any office closure. 

We would also like you to know that we are monitoring courthouse closures and how this may affect title examinations and document recording in the coming weeks. We are in communication with all of the title company underwriters to determine underwriting requirements for closings and insuring transactions in light of courthouse closures and varying e-recording capabilities. 

The current information we have regarding courthouse closures affecting the land records is available below, however, please note this is changing rapidly as more courts make decisions on how to proceed.  We will keep updating information throughout the coming days and weeks.

Sincerely,

Calloway Title and Escrow, LLC
