    Collapse The Nuts and Bolts of a Title Insurance Claim (Mechanicsburg, Simulcasts, Live Webcast)

    The unique nature of title insurance makes claims handling and litigating challenging, but it also allows one to be creative in solving title problems. 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.

     

    A “nuts and bolts” look at—

    • The title insurance policy itself—what it is, who it benefits, coverage exceptions and limitations
    • 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

     

    Ethics information has been integrated throughout this program. To receive ethics credit, you must attend the entire course.
