Santa’s New Regulations #TRID #Santa #Christmas

I was going to deliver presents on the 25th of December as usual, but due to hidden messages within TRID, I now have to follow proper guidelines. That being said, below is my revised holiday schedule.

Please make sure you submit your initial list at least 14 days prior to the 25th. This list will be called your IPD (Initial Present Disclosure.) You will then have 3 days before the expiration to modify or change that list.  If you change your IPD wish list, my EDT (Elf Disclosure Team) will send you a COCPL (Change of Circumstance Present List) which must have a  valid reason; such as, “I no longer want a waffle maker, but would like a healthy shake maker instead.” At that point, once everything is confirmed, we will issue you a final SPD (Santa Present Disclosure) which will go out to everyone immediately, including closers and funders.  Yours will go out 24-48 hours after others. At that point, you have 3 days to decide if you want your presents or decline.  Then I will get on my sleigh and deliver the presents.  You will have to wait 3 more days to open your presents, but if you’re not in a NEW home, you will have 3 more days to return the presents and forget  the entire thing,

HO HO HO Happy Holidays,

Santa Claus

Our New Office! #FCT #realestate #law

New OfficeToday was our last full day at our office of 15 years (though for me, it’s been 10 years off and on). First Class Title is moving up the street to 1803 Research Blvd., Suite 512, Rockville, MD, 20850. We’re all looking forward to the new office, but anytime you’re in on place for so long, the feeling will always be bittersweet. So, while we’re excited for the future, we remain respectful of the past and all the lessons it taught us.

If you’re getting ready to purchase or refinance a home, give us a call for a price quote, and be sure to let your realtor and lender know you’d like to work with us.

Note: Our office will be closed tomorrow at 1 pm to accommodate the move.
