RE:
Litter Control Administration Act Violations

Dear Associates:

We have been experiencing a high number of claims due to District of Columbia agents not properly checking the status of violations of the litter control act in the District. In an attempt to assist our DC agents in this matter and to reduce (and hopefully eliminate) problems caused by this law, I am providing you with a form letter developed by Kimberly Gilbert, Esquire, to the appropriate DC administrator handling the litter violations. Kim was been using this form with success and we are grateful to her for permitting us to use the form. We suggest that you make this form, or similar form, a part of your standard DC file set-up in an attempt to lessen the problem with litter liens.

THIS BULLETIN IS FURNISHED TO INFORM YOU OF CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS. AS A REMINDER, YOU ARE CHARGED WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE CONTENT ON VIRTUAL UNDERWRITER  AS IT EXISTS FROM TIME TO TIME AS IT APPLIES TO YOU, AS WELL AS ANY OTHER INSTRUCTIONS. OUR UNDERWRITING AGREEMENTS DO NOT AUTHORIZE OUR ISSUING AGENTS TO ENGAGE IN SETTLEMENTS OR CLOSINGS ON BEHALF OF STEWART TITLE GUARANTY COMPANY. THIS BULLETIN IS NOT INTENDED TO DIRECT YOUR ESCROW OR SETTLEMENT PRACTICES OR TO CHANGE PROVISIONS OF APPLICABLE UNDERWRITING AGREEMENTS. CONFIDENTIAL, PROPRIETARY, OR NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION SHOULD NEVER BE SHARED OR DISSEMINATED EXCEPT AS ALLOWED BY LAW. IF APPLICABLE STATE LAW OR REGULATION IMPOSES ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS, YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO COMPLY WITH THOSE REQUIREMENTS.
