Remote Online Notarization

Remote Online Notarization (RON) allows your customers to sign a closing without needing to leave home to complete the process. Turbo Title is currently working on an integration with Notarize.com to allow for RON closings.

A recent update adds the PDF bookmarks required for documents sent to Notarize. To get setup and begin using Notarize.com go here.

TurboNet can now send daily emails about upcoming REPC deadlines entered in the Order Setup. You can choose how far in advance for each deadline type and they will go out automatically each day. Customers can unsubscribe themselves, or sign up for text message notifications as well. It will also help clients make sure they have submitted their latest addendum. Contact us to get started.

January TurboTitle Update

Turbo Title 5.3 (Build includes several updates. With these updates the new property type underwriting requirements are met. TWRemit has also been updated to reflect these changes. Be sure to update TWRemit to make sure new property types are reflected in your underwriter report, as noted below.

January TurboTitle Update

Included in the January update (Build

  • Supports new property type underwriter reporting requirements.
  • TWRemit has been updated to handle the new requirements as well as the native reporting in Turbo Title. (More information and download below.)
  • Large exceptions are now handled better when printing commitments/policies. Splitting large exceptions into multiple blocks is no longer required.
How to get the update

Updating to the latest build is easily accomplished using the TurboTitle updater. The updater is available to download if you do not already have it.

Updating from TurboTitle 5.0 or earlier.

If you need to update from TurboTitle 5.0 or earlier, please contact us before running the updater.

Capturing Property Type Data

If you have been using Turbo Title as suggested in the Property Type Underwriting Requirements Post then you have been capturing “property type” data in Turbo Title. The underwriter reports internal to Turbo Title will use this new “property type” data when creating underwriter reports. The next section describes how to transfer that data into TWRemit from Turbo Title.

Getting Data into TWRemit

After running the January Turbo Title update, make sure that users running the remittance utility download the updated TWRemit Utility.

After installing build, property type data will automatically transfer into TWRemit as policies are printed. However, that data has NOT been transferred prior to this version. Update TWRemit data entered prior to this build by one of the following methods:

  • You can also use “Update Data in Remittance Records” to update all of the active records in TWRemit. (Recommended)
  • You can use “Update Current Record” to bring in fresh data including the property type data for a single record.
  • You can enter changes manually by using the Edit option or double click the grid. Then make the appropriate selection in the “PropType” field and click “OK”.

Property Type Underwriting Reporting

As you are probably aware the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, beginning January 1st, 2012, is requiring that the Property Type be added to all reported title policies.

You can begin to collect the data with the current version of Turbo Title by using the “Type” field under the “Property” tab in the Order Setup screen.

Select the first option “Residential 1-4” for a file to be reported as Residential property. Use either of the other options (“Residential 5+” or “Commercial”) to report the file as Non-residential.

We are currently working on modifying the underwriter reports and expect to have an update available by the end of the month.

The following screen shot show where to enter the required information:
