Indiana Governor Extends Stay At Home Order to April 20th: Legal and Real Estate / Appraisal / Title Services should be conducted virtually

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has extended the State’s Stay at Home Order in Executive Order 20-18 until April 20, 2020.  In the Order, the Governor admonishes that “legal services” and “real estate services (including appraisal and title services)” should be conducted virtually or by telephone when reasonably possible and that face-to-face meetings should be postponed unless not meeting in person would have a “significant adverse impact.”  Section 14 of the Order defines “Essential Businesses and Operations” and states in sub-section (q):

Professional services, such as legal services, accounting services, insurance services, and real estate services (including appraisal and title services) should be conducted virtually, or by telephone whenever reasonably possible and any professional services requiring face-to-face encounters should be postponed unless the failure to meet in-person will have a significant adverse impact on the client’s financial or legal position.
