Title insurance offers critical safeguards for homebuyers, including coverage for loss or damage suffered by title defects, and protection against liens, claims, fraud and forgery. These risks can often be amplified in transactions involving foreclosed properties, making title insurance even more essential. Do you have the tools and knowledge necessary to tackle these tricky transactions? 

Part of our new Title Fundamentals Webinar Series, this 70-minute CE/CLE* webinar will define and discuss: 

  • Common foreclosure terms and procedures, including required notices, costs, conduct of sale, presumption of validity, disposition of proceeds and transfer of title and possession 
  • Federal foreclosure

  • Judicial foreclosure vs. non-judicial foreclosure
