Pre-Institute Program

Title Insurance & Doc Prep: Defining Issues and Closing the Deal is offered on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, one day before the start of the Institute.

This Pre-Institute course is designed to address title insurance questions that frequently arise in a closing and are presented to the lawyer representing a party. The speakers will address title insurance due diligence for the client and how to assure the best coverage and rates. Moreover, what if the insured does have a defect in title or an encumbrance – how should it be handled? Finally, this course provides an overview and practice tips for the preparation of legal documents to convey title, release encumbrances and cure title issues.

  • MCLE and Escrow – 7.0 hours credit available  
  • TREC - 7.0 hours credit available

The legal library has been a valuable tool for me and is one of the best resources in the industry.  It’s extremely easy to navigate and I can immediately find information on just about every topic relevant to the Texas Title Industry.
