This CLE webinar will provide real estate counsel with an overview of the latest developments in title insurance coverage and explain best practices for evaluating and negotiating coverage, exclusions, and endorsements under American Land Title Association (ALTA) policies.


Counsel involved in the sale, purchase, or financing of commercial real estate must understand the critical role that title insurance plays in insuring against risks. Counsel can evaluate coverage and endorsements that provide the optimal protection for clients.

Practitioners must understand the intricate details of title insurance policies and current coverage trends, including all current ALTA endorsements, to effectively advise property owners, investors, lenders, and developers.

And parties must be able to address survey issues with the title company (and purchasers and lenders) and know which survey or other endorsements can resolve survey matters.

Listen as our authoritative panel discusses current trends in title insurance coverage and strategies for negotiating coverage and endorsements that will help avoid coverage gaps.
