A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of the May 2018 live seminar, 36th Annual Real Estate Practice.

Cosponsored with the Real Property Section of the Virginia State Bar

Now in its 36th year, Virginia CLE®’s Annual Real Estate Practice Seminar continues to set the standard for currency and quality in continuing legal education for real estate practitioners. Whether you have an established real estate practice or are a general practitioner who occasionally encounters real estate issues, this program is for you.

Buying or selling real estate, whether residential or commercial, may be the largest single investment that your client will ever make. Along with a considerable financial commitment, such transactions usually involve risk, technicalities, and a variety of complex legal considerations.

Topics include:

  • Essential Updates on Virginia Real Estate Case Law and Statutory Law
  • Ethics Hour—Affiliated Business Interests
  • Title Insurance
  • Deeds



Virginia’s Real Estate Legislative Update
Lucia Anna Trigiani, David S. Mercer

Learn what has passed and what is on the horizon for next year.
Virginia’s Real Estate Case Law Update
Otto W. Konrad, Christy L. Murphy

Materials on all real estate−related cases in the past year with a presentation highlighting the top cases.
Affiliated Business Arrangements and Joint Ventures Under RESPA
John C. Altmiller

As real estate service providers have sought to broaden their sources of revenue and increase their market share, tensions have arisen regarding precisely what type of arrangements are allowed under federal law. This presentation will address the kinds of business models between settlement companies, real estate agents, and lenders that are permissible under RESPA—and those that are not.  Topics will include the types of arrangements that constitute illegal kickbacks under RESPA, the safe harbor created by affiliated business arrangements as defined by the statute, the required disclosures, and a discussion of some of the more recent enforcement proceedings under the statute.

Title Insurance Claims
John E. Rinaldi

The presentation will be a general overview of the title insurance claims process from beginning to end, including title curative actions.  It will include a review of specific provisions of the current ALTA Standard Title Insurance Policies for both owners and lenders.

Susan M. Pesner

A continuation of the 2016 Deed presentation, including a short review of the 2016 materials, with further analyses of those “Other Deeds” (co-tenancy deeds, life estates, transfer-on-death deeds, deeds of dedication, deeds of easement, deeds of lease, etc.).
