Our attorney is having it updated. BTW, it is not “new” as you say, it is old. We had it updated back in 2009 but sometimes old forms linger.

Nick,
Thanks for your help in this matter, and thanks for the correction on the dates. This was just brought to my and Jims attention today so I thought that it was a new form that was just taking affect. Thanks again for all of your help in this matter, and it pays to have INACHI on your side. ;-}

It will turn out no different than Toledo: http://www.nachi.org/toledo.htm

I have no doubts on that Nick. Resistance is futile!!
