Listing Agents: Claims of Ownership

You can’t sell what you don’t own. This 3 credit Continuing Education course explains every ownership related title issue that can kill your deal. Starting with the Lis Pendens, title claims prevent the marketability of property and spotting these claims at the outset will save you time and money. Through this class, you will learn about partition actions, forged deeds, deeds obtained through false pretenses and fraud, rescission actions for both lack of capacity and the result of undue influence, and ownership claims based on unfulfilled promises called constructive trust action. Beyond playing defense, this course delves into ownership claims outside the boundary line by exploring lawsuits for property rights by way of adverse possession and prescriptive easement. Lastly, this course solidifies the relevance of the recording statute, which provides that a bona fide purchaser is the true property owner. Learn to spot these issues in your real estate practice and close more deals.
