2021 ALTA Commitment and Policy Forms

Ethically Handling Trust Transactions

Ethically Handling Trust Transactions

When dealing with trusts, are you guided by tradition and customs or by law and ethics? Should you always ask for a copy of the trust? In this seminar, you’ll learn the legal implications for all of the various vestings of trustees and how ethics should guide you in deciding whether or not to ask for the trust. You’ll also learn to navigate the problematic scenarios of homestead property and deceased settlors.

Presented by Dave Morgan, Esq., Underwriting Counsel

Fundamentals of Title and Closing

Fundamentals of Title and Closing

The title and closing process, from the beginning stages of the contract all the way to post-closing matters, can sometimes appear daunting and overwhelming. And with time constraints added to the mix, the pressure is compounded. If you wish that a trusted expert would walk alongside you to answer some of those nagging questions as to why we do the things we do, then this course is for you. In this hour, we’ll focus on the “why” behind the “what” we do for tasks like preparing the title commitment, preparing the title and closing documents, notarization, recording and preparing the final title policy. Even seasoned professionals will gain valuable insights from this topic, along with a coveted ethics credit to boot!

Presented by Christina Taylor, Esq., Speaker and Education Specialist

The Essentials of Title and Probate

The Essentials of Title and Probate

Probate and title insurance are inextricably linked. In this course we’ll cover the proper methods for vesting title coming out of probate, as well as how to convey title while the probate estate is still open. We’ll discuss how homestead affects the probate process, out of state probates, estate taxes, and liens and judgments against decedents. The more you know, the smoother your closing will be!

Presented by Patrick Quirk, Underwriting Counsel
