Nobody says it better than our good friend, colleague and mentor, Mike Kennedy. So we take this opportunity to step aside and let you hear this important message directly from the man himself. If you missed it, here is Mike’s blog from September 14.

Lau's Corner & Title Tips

Certificate of Occupancy:

Reminder: Some Cities/Towns require a certificate of occupancy for change of ownership, completion of a building permit, change of tenants for a unit or units within the premises and for other scenarios. A site visit often needs to be scheduled before a certificate of occupancy will be granted. When opening a file, please keep this in mind. 

Career Network:

We often hear of firms who are hiring. While we welcome phone calls or emails, we have added a career network post under News and Announcements (bottom right-hand corner) on the VATC website.
