NY TIRSA Successor in Ownership of Indebtedness Endorsement Guideline 1994

Explanation:

Purpose Of Endorsement:
The 1992 ALTA Loan Policy already provides that the assignee is an insured, without the necessity of an endorsement. This endorsement satisfies the needs of the secondary market for a paper showing that the Company recognizes the assignee as having an insurable interest if the assignment is effective. To get anything more (i.e., bring the policy “up to date” or providing any coverage which might touch on the validity of the assignment), a search would have to be run and a “modification” rate imposed, in which case this endorsement would be unnecessary.

Underwriting Requirements:

Requirements For Issuance:
(a) Assignee of mortgage asks for an endorsement reflecting the name of the assignee as the named insured under the policy;
(b) No search need be made, as the endorsement is made on the strength of the assignee’s request, and is invalid if there has been no assignment recorded.
Issued With The Following Policies:
Supplemental to a mortgage policy, but issued at a later date.
Premium:
$25.00
