Curing Title Exceptions

Learn what to look for when reviewing titles and get practical strategies for curing the issues before closing.

Titles are often subject to outstanding interests and claims, some genuine but others unsubstantial or baseless. What types of defects, liens and encumbrances impair the title to real estate? When, as the result of tangible matters revealed by a search and examination of the title, is the title unmarketable? Learn what to look for when reviewing the title commitment and land survey, and what endorsements are currently available that provide additional coverage against a spectrum of title risks. Under what circumstances will title insurance be available to insure against mechanics liens, judgment liens, tax liens and other recurring statutory liens? Discuss and compare practical pre-closing solutions to real estate title problems involving sellers, buyers and lenders.
