Join a panel of experienced attorneys who investigate and litigate these claims, as they walk you through the basic steps of filing and defending a claim.

    • The “top ten” title insurance claims from a lender’s policy perspective—including unrecorded mortgages, mortgages with missing or insufficient legal descriptions, mortgages and other liens from prior owners remaining of record
    • Initiating a claim—how and when to initiate a claim, what support to include with the claim, the “etiquette” for contacting the title insurer
    • The response of the title insurer to a claim—options, what the claimant can expect to hear.
    • Resolving the claim—typical tactics, communication with assigned counsel
