Candace Cunningham Presents Webinar on Title Insurance
Real Estate + Development Group lawyer Candace M. Cunningham was among the panelists who participated in a webinar on “Title Insurance; What Coverage to Get and How to (Try to) Sustain It” on December 5, 2018. The program was part of the American Bar Association Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section’s “Mastering the Art of Commercial Real Estate Deals” webinar series, which is a comprehensive set of programs on commercial real estate. The Title Insurance session is associated with the second program in the four-part series, entitled "The Contract is Signed, Now What? Due Diligence Traps for the Unwary." The panel covered key points from opening the order for title insurance to closing and recording the real estate transaction as well as what happens after the inevitable claims arise. Candace also offered tips for the construction lender in the wake of several circuit court decisions negating title insurance coverage for mechanic’s liens, on the theory that the lender “created” the liens.
