re: Loan Payoff - Title Company Responsible? - LSUKTR
[quote]You're likely ok. The mortgage company gives a payout amount that is usually good for a period of time. I suspect they will deposit the check and cancel the mortgage without issue.[/quote] Yes, confident it will get paid off, and the payoff amount was through end of month. But every da...

re: Looking for a drill/driver combo. Recs? - LSUKTR
I just started building a Makita lineup to replace my just-out-of-college Ryobi set that lasted 12 years. Batteries have come a long way since then. I’ve gone all Makita for both my battery powered and corded tools. Didn’t do a ton of research, but reviews seem to be good. ...
