RE:
UNDERWRITING - Emergency Orders Extended to May 20, 2021

Dear Associates:

To date Governor Ned Lamont has issued many Executive Orders as a result of the pandemic sweeping the world. Many of the orders affected real estate matters in terms of temporarily permitting remote notarization, removing witness requirements for conveyancing, staying of appeal periods and court actions. Many of such orders had expiration dates for such matters while others were open ended. The legislature has just further extended the Governor’s emergency powers until May 20, 2021.
