In order to issue commitment in Maryland,the checklist they have published is as follows:

Proof that the borrower/foreclosed owner has vacated the property and that it isnot occupied by anyone claiming rights under or through such person.Further underwriting considerations:
Did all record owners sign the deed of trust foreclosed on?
Was a trustee listed on the deed of trust?
Was the legal description correct?
Was there a substituted purchaser? Was that purchaser approved by the court inthe foreclosure case?
Were all subordinate lienholders notified prior to sale? See Affidavit of Compliance.
Was the Appointment of Substitution of Trustee dated and recorded prior to thefiling of the foreclosure?
Review the foreclosure docket carefully. Has an independent auditor or specialmaster been appointed by the court to review the case file and is the courtawaiting a determination from that auditor? Was a Show Cause order issued to thetrustee/attorney to report to the court the sufficiency of the affidavits?
Is the foreclosed deed of trust an indemnity deed of trust (IDOT)? If so, makecertain that you have collected sufficient recordation taxes to cover the cost torecord the trustee’s deed to the re-purchasing lender.
All powers of attorney utilized by REO lender must be recorded or submitted for review prior to closing.
If you have any questions relating to this or other bulletins, please contact your local underwriting personnel or Stewart Legal Services.
