OTHER IAR ACTIONS SINCE LAST WEEK
We organized a letter to Governor Holcomb asking him to address the county government office closures that we know are slowing or stopping real estate transactions. That letter also asked the Governor to speed up implementation of the electronic notary statute set to go into effect July 1st. Indiana is one of 12 states that have enacted such a statute. Co-signers included the Indiana State Bar Association, the Indiana Bankers Association, the Indiana Mortgage Bankers Association, and the Indiana Land Title Association.
Additionally, we have been in touch with the Holcomb administration regarding the possible issuance of a stay-at-home order. We shared industry concerns regarding a possible essential services list under such an order. We are confident the Governor’s team will consider our concerns. With that said, we also know conditions are changing rapidly and state leaders have many issues to balance. We trust that decisions made will be in the absolute best interest of all Hoosiers.
