Real Estate E-Closings: Wave of the Future or a Passing Fad?

In today's marketplace electronic transactions are becoming more the norm than the exception. As this progression towards technology continues, the real estate practitioner must be prepared to deal with an entirely electronic transaction. A multitude of laws have been passed to address the enforceability of electronically executed documents, while the commercial market has developed applications to ensure the veracity of electronically executed documentation. This on-demand webinar will provide an overview of the various laws, statutes and commercial products that have arisen to accommodate electronic transactions in both the residential and commercial context. Once the legal framework has been established, the webinar will provide some guidelines for conducting electronic loan closings (or e-closings) and discuss ways to avoid some potential pitfalls for lenders in the paperless transaction. This program will conclude with an analysis of the impact of electronic closings on the traditional due diligence conducted in an electronic loan closing.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to discuss the rise of paperless closings.
  • You will be able to explain the laws surrounding e-closings.
  • You will be able to identify risks associated with e-closings.
  • You will be able to review title insurance and the e-closing.
