Title and Closing Services
Issue Date: Wednesday, September 28, 2016
Deadline: Wednesday, October 19, 2016
The New Orleans Redevelopment Authority (NORA) administers a variety of programs to rehabilitate and redevelop the properties under its purview, and it also engages in commercial property acquisition and redevelopment throughout the City as an alternate means of stimulating neighborhood revitalization. In the course of its daily operations, NORA frequently acquires and disposes of both residential and commercial real property.
NORA now desires to create a pool of qualified attorneys to provide document preparation, abstracting and title insurance services, closing and escrow services, oversight for the transfer and/or acquisition of NORA properties, general legal advice with respect to the foregoing services, and requests proposals from experienced firms and individual practitioners to provide these services. The services sought in the RFP are intended to cover all NORA properties that are currently owned or may be acquired. NORA anticipates approximately 100-200 closings of these properties annually, which will be divided among a number of qualified contractors.
Single copies of the RFP may be obtained on NORA’s website at redevelop.nola.gov or by contacting Kristy Chauvin, Contract Compliance Coordinator, via telephone at (504) 658-4400 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals must be submitted to NORA at 1409 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70113 no later than Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.
