Title Commitments and Reports: What’s In Them and Why We Care

Course Description: 

Acquiring real property interests for any purpose requires the aid of title specialists who can assist in revealing facts or raising questions about this major investment. Whether as purchasers or as the ones interested in locating these interests on the ground, we are likely to find ourselves confronting a mass of paper organized into various Schedules with the relevant bits scattered amidst boilerplate language. Depending upon our needs, we may read some parts and not others, but we should understand why all those lists and document copies are included.
What are title commitments and reports? How do they affect the real property acquisition process? What do the documents included tell us, and what don’t they tell us? After defining “title” and distinguishing between marketable and insurable title, we’ll answer these and other questions.
