John Pezold's thoughts

This legislation requires third party property deed solicitors that mail a solicitation for services to obtain a copy of an instrument conveying real estate to disclose at the top of their solicitation in all caps with at least 16-point Helvetica font that "this is not a bill or official government document. This is a solicitation."
