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.
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 been with Village Settlements since 1994, and has worked in the title industry since 1986. She is a licensed title producer for the State of Maryland. To enhance her knowledge of the law and title insurance, Nancy earned her Paralegal Certificate from Montgomery College. She also completed a nutrition degree at the University of Maryland, and is a Registered Dietitian. Her leisure time activities include family game dates, quilting and baking.
