Title Endorsements: Endorsing the Endorsements, Recommendations and More

Searle Mitnick will speak as a panelist on the ALI-CLE/American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL) webinar, "Title Endorsements: Endorsing the Endorsements, Recommendations and More."

Tuesday, February 26, 2019
1:00 to 2:15 pm

Why You Should Attend

Many lawyers have had trying experiences when selecting title insurance endorsements for their transactions. Some have battled with title insurance companies and lenders. Others have been unsure about what coverages to request. Attorneys in the same firm may have different lists of endorsements that they routinely request. If you have experienced any of these issues, this program is for you.
The Title Insurance Committee of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL) polled its members as to which title endorsements they typically request for owner and lender title insurance policies. With this information, the Committee identified the endorsements most commonly requested by the majority of respondents. This program discusses these endorsements at length and will prepare you for your next transaction involving them.

What You Will Learn

During this informative program, our panel of ACREL fellows will share the Title Insurance Committee’s findings on the most commonly requested American Land Title Association endorsements, analyzing key coverages, risk mitigation tactics, and more! Topics of discussion will include:

  • Which endorsements are “standard” and customarily requested and what additional coverage they provide
  • Reinsurance issues
  • Closing protection letters
  • Custom, non-ALTA and state-specific endorsements
  • Encroachment issues and the regulatory landscape
  • The structure of title policies and differences between owner and lender policies

All registrants will receive a set of downloadable course materials to accompany the program.

NOTE: Program run time is 75 minutes; MCLE credit is 1 hour.

This program will benefit attorneys, accountants, investors, developers, and other professionals involved in real estate transactions.
