Critical Examination of the Title Report (Creasman) - 213711

Critical Examination of the Title Report

Join us for a discussion on how to recognize missing components of a title report, how to identify matters that can give rise to a title claim if not noticed while underwriting a file, and when you need to ask the abstracter for more information from the records in the courthouse. Special thanks to SME, Inc. for sponsoring this session!
