COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented interruption in the rendering of traditional legal services—especially the purchase and sale of real estate. Looking primarily at residential transactions (but with much of the discussion equally applicable to commercial deals) this program will make reference to some pre-contract concerns and CV-19 needed contract provisions and bore-down into the new normal of remote closings. With closed offices and social distancing the rule in all cases , how do you take the “old” normal—a room filled with buyers, sellers, lawyers, lenders, brokers and title agents-- and make for a smooth transfer of title and loan closing with all working remotely. It can and is being done.

In this hands-on program you will learn about remote verifications, electronic and remote notarization, gap title insurance coverage, orchestrating all parties for the closing and , getting all funds in the correct amounts to the right place, all culminating (hopefully) in the successful transfer of title and funding of a mortgage loan.

Tips and traps will be emphasized.
