Natural Disaster Alert:

RMS Disaster Services:

To Our Valued Business Partners and Customers,

As you are all aware, many of our areas are preparing for the onset of Hurricane Florence over the next few days. We will be closing the Jacksonville, NC and Raleigh, NC offices at the end of the day, September 12th and anticipate those offices remaining closed for Thursday and Friday. We have postponed all settlements for those branches that were scheduled for those days and will reevaluate the situation as the storm moves through.

 

All of our staff have laptops and can continue to work on loans, provided we have power. In the event of an extended power outage, we will arrange for RMS staff in unaffected areas to work on those loans, so that we don’t miss a beat for those transactions that may be able to close next week. It is highly likely that all properties will have to be re-inspected to be sure there is no damage. Appraisers will all be extremely busy, so please have patience and we will get all loans closed as soon as possible.

 

Please keep yourselves and your families safe during the storm. We will stay in contact as much as we can via telephone or text if need be.

 

Thank you for trusting your business to RMS. We appreciate you and look forward to getting through the hurricane with minimal disruption.
