Law Firms and Title Agencies: Regulatory Similarities and Differences

$25 Members & Staff, $65 Non-Members

Tuesday, April 10 (12:00 pm to 1:00 pm) - Register Now

When lawyers refer and process title insurance transactions using an affiliated title insurance agency, the agency will benefit from, but be burdened by, a set of rules different from those which govern Florida-licensed attorneys.  For example, the agency must be recognized by the state and be separately coupled with an underwriter.  This one hour webinar will explore the similarities and differences between law firms and title agencies.


This seminar has been approved for 1 general, 1 ethics and 1 business litigation certification credit with The Florida Bar; 1 hour of continuing education with NALA and the Department of Financial Services.

Stay Inside the Lines: Surveys & Legal Descriptions

$50 Members & Staff, $65 Non-Members

Tuesday, March 13, 20 & 27 (12:00 pm to 1:00 pm) - Register Now

This practical, essential skills seminar is one of the Legal Education Department’s Transactional Foundations series of seminars geared for real estate attorneys and their paralegal staff who desire training in reading, interpreting, and understanding surveys and legal descriptions.

This webinar addresses the concomitant title issues pertaining to surveys, general and specific survey exceptions, and coverage issues. This webinar will prove valuable to attorneys and paralegals who conduct real estate transactions, analyze or map legal descriptions, order or read surveys, and make determinations whether a legal description or survey issue renders title unmarketable. Whether the legal description unit of measurement involves a platted lot, a condominium unit, or is metes and bounds, take this course and go the distance. Different types of surveys used in Florida are compared and contrasted, including ALTA/NSPS and the standards of practice. Using real examples (including some from Fund claims files) attendees will develop survey reading skills and learn to translate examination results into title insurance requirements and exceptions. Special emphasis will be placed upon locating, analyzing, identifying and interpreting survey anomalies – matters shown on the survey that, if not rectified, must be specifically excepted from coverage or insured against before a transaction closes.


This seminar is approved for 3.5 general credits, 3.5 Business Litigation, Civil Trial, and Real Estate certification credits, and 0.5 ethics credit with The Florida Bar; 3.0 hours of continuing education credit with NALA and up to 3.0 hours of continuing education credit with the Department of Financial Services. 

PLEASE NOTE: DFS credit is only available for the live webinar, NOT the recorded version of this presentation that already exists.
