Introduction to the Uniform Closing Instructions

Thursday, November 12, 2020 | 2:30 - 3:30 PM ET

For the past few years, ALTA and the Mortgage Bankers Association have worked with the Mortgage Industry's Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) to create uniform closing instructions. Due to this collaborative effort, the title and mortgage industries now have standardized templates. This means title and settlement agents will no longer have to search through pages of instructions for information they need. This webinar will review the new format and organization of the closing instructions.

In addition, register for this webinar and learn how the standardized closing instructions can: 

  • Drive efficiency
  • Improve communication between lenders and settlement agents
  • Reduce delays in the closing process
  • Enhance the consumer experience
  • Lower costs
  • Decrease document changes for the loan operating system

Native American Land Webinar Series: Leasing
