Information

Why Attend?

  • Learn information useful for real estate practitioners, whether representing sellers, buyers, lenders, or title agents
  • Get a roadmap to the sources of data available to the attorney who wants to examine a title or review a title report

Real estate serves as most individuals’ largest value asset and makes up the collateral for their largest debts. Yet those transactions are only as good as the title to the real estate. A properly conducted title examination assures both purchaser and lender they are getting what they bargained for. The process of examination is part mechanical, part intuition, part historical research, part terror, and part drudgery. Yet the proper end result is a magic that fuels dreams.

This course will provide a basic overview of title examination processes and procedures in Virginia. Focus areas will include the various records maintained by Clerk of the Circuit Court, records maintained by the locality, and the indices to those records, which make finding the data pertaining to the transaction at hand possible.
