The Advantage of Our On-Site Payoff Department

As a part of the Federal Wire System, we offer you direct fund transfers and same day payoffs that are fast and efficiently executed. This is very important to customers dealing in high dollar figure transactions because we are not dependent on another department or entity to conduct scheduled payoffs.

All of our escrow officers and managerial staff have the appropriate wire transfer authority and can, therefore, wire funds. This expedites the close of a transaction and allows payoff to be done quickly and efficiently. We do not need to call or fax for authority. This capability means you have no “down time.”

We Offer You Our Financial Assistance

Because of our strong national relationships with many financial institutions, we are able to move funds quickly through their interstate banking systems.

Skillful Processing, Tracking And Scheduling

Our escrow officers track documents and funds throughout the course of the escrow, constantly advising the parties and their representatives of the status and of what is needed to close. As the closing date approaches, the parties are assisted by our escrow officers in obtaining all necessary documents. The receipt of funds is confirmed, the escrow is closed by recording documents, handling payoff and disbursement, and by immediately providing the closing package in a prompt and efficient manner.

At Novare Title, we take great pride in our seamless escrow process and work flow. This is why we are the solution for complex commercial, industrial, and subdivision transactions.
