Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide real estate counsel with a review and discussion on how to clear title defects arising from mortgage-related issues, legal description errors, and foreclosure. The program will analyze the various issues that arise in these common defects and best practices for curing these title defects to close the deal.

Description

The goal of every real estate deal attorney is to ensure a timely and smooth closing of the transaction. Title defects are just one of the many hurdles that transaction attorneys must clear. While there are many risks that can create an encumbrance on a title, some of the more common title defects that face real estate practitioners are mortgage-related issues, legal description errors, missing interests and unreleased mortgages.

Armed with the knowledge on how to cure these common title defects, practitioners can ensure that they close commercial transactions on time and with little surprises.

Listen as our authoritative panel of real estate practitioners discusses best practices for identifying and clearing title defects arising from mortgage-related issues, legal description errors, and foreclosure.
