Michael R. O'Donnell, Co-Managing Partner of the Firm and a partner in Riker Danzig's Commercial Litigation Department, will be speaking at an upcoming Strafford live CLE webinar presented to real estate counsel, "Curing Title Defects Under the 2021 Revised ALTA Owner's and Loan Policies: Identifying and Resolving Common Defects," scheduled for Thursday, October 28, 2021 from 1:00 PM -2:30 PM EST.  Mike and the other panelists will provide a review of the 2021 revisions to the ALTA Owner's and Loan Policies, particularly the revised endorsements and addenda. The speakers will discuss best practices for curing title defects arising from judgments and liens, defects arising from the rights of third parties, and defects caused by breaks in the chain of title.  

The panel will review these and other vital questions:

  • How have the revisions in the 2021 ALTA Owner's and Loan Policies affected addressing title defects?
  • What are the most common liens on property, and what are best practices for investigating and clearing the lien?
  • What are the most common issues that arise with third-party rights, and what are best practices for resolving these issues?
  • When would action to quiet title be necessary to resolve a break in the chain of title, and what are best practices for curing title through litigation?

This 90-minute webinar is eligible in most states for 1.5 CLE credits. For more information or to register, go to Strafford.com.
