International Promissory Notes

We have been made aware of several completed and in-progress transactions where the funds to purchase the property were held by a third party and were in the form of an International Promissory Note (IPN) rather than cash.

4Real 7.1 is Now Available

Version 7.1 has been updated with the latest form revisions from the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation for the ALTA 9 and 14 Series Endorsements. The Florida Form 9.1, 06 ALTA 9.3, 06 ALTA 9.5, 06 ALTA 14.1 and Assignment of Mortgage Endorsement (AME) forms will be retired. The Florida Form 9.1 will be replaced with the ALTA 9.1-06. The Assignment of Mortgage Endorsement (AME) will be replaced with the ALTA 10.0. The ALTA 9-06 has been partially renamed to take out the word “Easements” and substituted with the word “Encroachments” in the title. The wording change on the ALTA 9-06 will also be reflected on Schedule A of both the Mortgagee Policy (MF6) and Mortgagee Policy Short Form (SF6). The ALTA 14 series endorsements (14-06, 14.2-06 & 14.3-06) also have minor technical changes.
