|Well, now, this sucks....|
You said, "I will no longer prep for a loan signing on RON without promise of being paid even if the lender decides no, because lenders are still not 100% on board."
Are you saying that the Title Co. sets it up with you as a RON, sends the docs for you to spend time 'tagging'....and then the Lender says "No way"? As you said 'no longer', that kinda tells me it happens frequently? I'd think the TC should know that the Lender doesn't want RON before they engage a RON notary. Or are other issues involved in this switcheroo?
