Topics covered include:

  • Essential Updates on Virginia Real Estate Case Law and Statutory Law
  • Ethics Hour on Practical Benefits of Civility and the Practice of Law
  • Updated ALTA Title Insurance Policies
  • Virginia’s Real Estate Legislative Updates

Cosponsored with the Real Property Section of the Virginia State Bar

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. With a complete update of current statutory and case law, this program also includes the new ALTA requirements with a line-by-line analysis of the ALTA® Closing Protection Letter. The ALTA changes are not so much a total revision as an update to bring policy forms in line with electronic transactions and include coverage or definitions for common matters that impact policyholders.




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

Materials on all real estate−related cases in the past year with a presentation highlighting the top cases.
Civility in the Practice of Law and the Influence of George Washington—Ethics
Justice Stephen R. McCullough, Hon. William E. Glover, Jeannie P. Dahnk

One hour of ethics focused on the philosophical underpinnings and practical benefits of civility and the practice of law.

2021 ALTA Title Insurance Policies
Kay Creasman

The 2021 changes to the ALTA Title Insurance Policies are not so much a total revision as an update to bring policy forms in line with electronic transactions and include coverage or definitions for common matters that impact policyholders. The focus will be on the Owner’s Policy and the Homeowner’s Policy (enhanced coverage) with a review of how title insurance really benefits an owner (what’s covered and what’s excluded), as well as a discussion of continuation of coverage as owners continue to convey their real estate to living trusts, entities, children, and others.

Closing Protection Letters from A to Z
Kevin T. Pogoda

A line-by-line analysis of the ALTA® Closing Protection Letter and its use in Virginia real estate transactions.

Class Title: 3M—Is it Modular, Manufactured, or Mobile?
Michele Freemyers

This one-hour session will give practitioners a clear understanding of the differences between these homes and why it matters for title underwriting purposes. Learn the tricks to determine if it is personal or real property, how to convert them from personal to real property, and the procedural steps to meet the sometimes-confusing title underwriting requirements.
