A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of one session from the May 2014 live seminar, 32nd Annual Real Estate Practice Seminar.

In April 2012 the CFPB issued a bulletin that requires “supervised banks and nonbanks” to “oversee their business relationships with service providers” to ensure all are complying with federal consumer financial law. All settlement agents are nonbank service providers. The American Land Title Association (ALTA) has developed guidelines, "ALTA’s Best Practices," to assist in complying with CFPB’s requirements.

See how ALTA’s Best Practices relate to Virginia ethics guidelines, specifically how Rule 1.15, Safekeeping Property, may be at odds with Best Practice (BP) #2; how Rule 1.6, Confidentiality of Information, is impacted by Gramm-Leach-Bliley and BP #3; and whether it is time to require minimum E & O, fidelity and surety coverage as part of Virginia’s Rules of Professional Responsibility (BP #6).
