Re: [tips_and_tricks] To avoid giving your Social Security Number at a property closing
- View SourceI forwarded part of this thread to a real estate investor relative who told me that a title company that he uses does not collect the ssn's and that they told him that there is no actual requirement for them. It could be a question of finding the law, discovering exactly what it says and seeing if there is a substantive regulation with the force and effect of law involved. I went ahead and checked it out. The code section for this is 26 USC 6045. The related regulation is 26 CFR 1.6045-4, and it is a substantive regulation with the force and effect of law.

As an RE broker, and a Mortgage Broker, I have seen many closings where the
buyer or seller refused to sign such a thing, and the closing continued! The
contract for real estate and mortgage is not contingent on such!
