More people than ever are working remotely. Some are working on a hybrid schedule with some days in the office. Companies have been increasingly allowing the option to work from home especially with the current circumstances we are all experiencing. Given all this, how will the housing market be affected?
On March 27, 2020, Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (AKA the CARES Act) was signed into law with the goal of providing relief for those affected by the Covid-19 epidemic. In addition to stimulus checks and small business loans, the CARES act allows homeowners to apply for temporary loan forbearance for up to 180 days and possibly extend forbearance for another 180 days.
During this unprecedented time, when COVID-19 is affecting not only our communities but the entire world, we are here to provide you with a safe, secure, convenient closing experience. Effective immediately, we are implementing procedures across Madison in accordance with the guidelines provided by the CDC and WHO. This situation is constantly evolving and our practices will evolve with it. Please be assured that we are doing everything in our power to protect our clients, partners, and staff. We firmly believe in the importance of implementing social distancing to protect you, ourselves, and our community.
Though things have been changing daily in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, it looks like many of us will be waiting until Mid-May for restrictions to start lifting on “non-essential” businesses. Coping with this as a 1099 employee or small business owner can be challenging. We decided to put together a guide for options for those who cannot file for traditional unemployment benefits.
In response to current events and our need to protect our valued clients and staff, Madison Settlements is urging everyone to support legislation that will modernize Notary Laws and allow us to use secure methods for the electronic notarization of documents. Notaries need reliable technology to assist them in serving their clients needs, in this difficult time and beyond.
