Don’t miss this primer for new attorneys and
those new to the real estate law practice!


Attorneys representing clients in real estate transactions have a duty to understand title insurance and its scope of coverage. Failure to properly address title issues could cause your client to receive a title insurance policy containing unacceptable title exceptions which, in turn, could result in losses or damages that would not be covered by the title insurance policy, affect marketability of the property, and result in a malpractice claim against you. This one-hour webinar offers a real-world look at a sample title commitment, including a detailed analysis of common title exceptions and identification of the documentation used to clear certain exceptions. Real estate lawyers and general practitioners who attend this webinar will better understand:

  • The basic parts of a title commitment, including changes and new features of the 2016 ALTA Title Commitment form;
  • Extended coverage and requirements to obtain it;
  • Encroachments and other common survey issues;
  • Real estate tax issues, including sold, open and delinquent taxes;
  • Subdivision plats;
  • How to clear mortgages, judgments, and other common liens;
  • Decedents’ Estates;
  • Trusts; and
  • Condominiums.
