Event description


This basic seminar is one of the Legal Education Department’s Transactional Foundations series of seminars. It is geared for the novice title examiner who has had little-to-no formal training in the mechanics and principles of title examination. Also, it may be useful for those persons who have not examined title in many years, and are seeking to refresh their title examination skills. No title searching is covered in this seminar; the seminar assumes that the examiner has the results of an appropriate title search for examination. The seminar steps the examiner through the mechanics and principles of basic title examination culminating in the preparation of a title insurance commitment. The seminar consists of a formal presentation of the principles, followed by a hands-on exercise in which a title search is examined, a title chain is developed, and a title insurance commitment is prepared. Attendees will learn about title examination maxims & principles, steps of title examination, how to create a title chain, examining deeds and mortgages, the Marketable Record Title Act, sources of Base Title, and translating title examination results into requirements or exceptions in a title insurance Commitment.

Accreditation: The seminar is approved for 3.5 general credits and 3.5 real estate certification credits from The Florida Bar, and 3 hours of continuing education by NALA.

The Florida Bar accreditation for this seminar will expire on March 9, 2020 and access to this seminar will not be available after that date.
