WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Earn CLE and learn how to render defensible decisions regarding real property titles and title insurance.
If your law practice deals with real estate issues, you know how important a title review is to making sound client counsel decisions regarding a purchase or sale.
The goal of the title review process is to examine the state of title and to decide on the appropriate coverages and acceptable exceptions to coverage. When you're asked to supply an opinion letter detailing findings with regard to the title, it must include a description of the property, its owners, and a complete listing of any issues you've uncovered.
The review of title issues must be exhaustive in order to provide the most complete and reliable opinion possible.
Join your colleagues for a CLE webinar on how to analyze the information gathered in the title review, and learn tips on how to draft and negotiate title insurance policies.
