SB 405 - The sections regulating the closing of real estate sales by settlement agents are moved from Chapter 442, RSMo, (real estate conveyances) to Chapter 381, RSMo, (title insurance). These sections currently require settlement agents to take certified funds and to record security interests within three days.
