Serving You and Your Clients in the Convenience of Your Car

On March 20, 2020, Governor Pritzker issued a public order in response to COVID-19 requiring individuals to stay home unless they need Essential Services. As the state recognizes the important work lawyers do, Legal and Title Services are among those considered to be Essential Services. ATG offices will remain open and available for your and your clients' title and settlement needs.

In light of these unusual circumstances, ATG announces Carhop Closing Services.

Your next closing with ATG can be a Carhop Closing to limit person-to-person contact and ensure your clients' health and safety. Our suburban Chicago offices are staffed with Closers and Notaries who can assist with required "Wet Ink" signatures on documents—while you or your clients stay safely in your cars.

  • Schedule your ATG Carhop Closing the same way as any other ATG closing:
    • Chicago Area: Use ATG GO or call ATG Closing Services at 312.372.1585.
    • NLT Division: Call the desired NLT location directly (see Office Hours and Locations).
    • Champaign County: Call Meagan Svymbersky at 217.403.0095.
    • Metro East Area: Call Carrie Roberts at 618.277.9440.
    • Wisconsin: Call 262.347.0102.
  • ATG will confirm with the borrower's lender that it authorizes DocuSign signatures for all documents that don't require "Wet Ink" signatures.
  • Those documents will be sent to the buyer and the buyer's lawyer for review and can be pre-signed electronically.
  • When arriving at the scheduled ATG Carhop Closing site, the borrower calls the ATG office. Our closer conducts a curbside verification of identity and the borrower signs the documents that require "Wet Ink" signatures.
  • Our closer notarizes and processes the executed documents.
  • ATG staff returns closing packages to all necessary parties via email after the closing.
  • Sellers and their lawyers can follow the same process for their non-notary documents. We encourage you to make an appointment any time prior to closing to have items notarized, or deliver pre-signed and notarized documents to closing. We are happy to provide courier labels.
