Seller CD must be provided to Wells prior to disbursement
Wells Fargo communicated with its settlement agents (closing attorneys in South Carolina) by memo dated September 22. In case you missed it, you can read it in its entirety here.
The biggest news is that Wells will now require a copy of the seller Closing Disclosure along with the other documents required prior to disbursement. Apparently, receipt of the seller CD has been a challenge, necessitating the procedural modification.
Another challenge has been the process for handling changes to the borrower’s CD. The memo stated that any changes known prior to closing, including changes to the closing numbers, the closing date and the disbursement date, must be communicated to the Wells Fargo closer. Wells Fargo’s closer will provide an updated borrower CD and any other updated documents for closing.
Any changes detected at or post-closing should be communicated to: SAPostClosingCommunications@wellsfargo.com.
The memo also discussed the phased rollout in progress for delivering training materials and other support for the use of Closing Insight™. We encourage closing attorneys to read and comply with this information to avoid being left out when this process is fully implemented.
