1 Notwithstanding the individual lender instructions in this chart, the Confirmation is always required to be sent where additional inquiries or verifications (that is, beyond those demanded by the TitlePLUS program) are requested by the lender or you are asking TitlePLUS to "insure over" any title problems/outstanding issues. Additional instructions/"insure over" requests must be set out in a schedule and attached to Confirmation.
2 An "approved exception" must be included in Schedule "A", but you do not need specific lender approval for it. Schedule "A" may also always include the lender's own mortgage and any related security documentation without the need for approval.
