Nancy Salaets is in charge of the preparation and distribution of final policies of title insurance following settlement. After title deeds have been recorded in the land records, the originals are returned to Village Settlements, Inc., and the recording information on the deed is used to prepare a final policy of title insurance. Nancy prepares and then distributes these policies for our Gaithersburg and Greenbelt Offices. She has been in the legal field since 1980, including working as a legal secretary for a personal injury firm in California, and a general practice law firm in Maryland.
Additionally, as she reviews files for the preparation of the title insurance policies, she also ensures that the prior loans that were recorded against the property that were resolved at closing have been “officially” released from the appropriate land records. This helps avoid long term title issues for sellers or those refinancing their mortgages.
Ms. Salaets has worked in the title industry since 1985. To enhance her knowledge of the law and title insurance, Nancy earned her Paralegal Certificate from Montgomery College in 2004. She also completed a nutrition degree at the University of Maryland in 2009, and is a Registered Dietitian. She is a resident of Germantown, where she lives with her husband and children.
