"Mortgage Market Surviving Government Shutdown For Now"

Some lenders are reporting examples of mortgage closings that are being delayed by the federal shutdown, and problems could mount if the shutdown continues. But for now, the impact of the shutdown has been fairly limited, say industry executives.

"Over the first few days and today, it's relatively business as usual," said David Stevens, chief executive of the Mortgage Bankers Association, in an interview Wednesday on WSJ Live.

How do I Find a Copy of my Deed?

Published in Real Estate

You just bought your home and you wonder where do I get a copy of my deed?  In Massachusetts your deed is recorded at the Registry of Deeds for your county.  Some counties have more than one Registry of Deeds, such as Middlesex South in Cambridge and Middlesex North in Lowell.  The original deed gets scanned at the Registry and the information from the deed is inputted by the Registry Personnel, so the names of the sellers and the buyers are typed into the system along with the property address and the amount paid for the property.
