Legal Chat: What Title Examiners and Conveyancers Need to Know Live program

Tuesday, Nov. 16, 4-5 p.m.
NOTE: There is no on-site attendance available for Legal Chats.

It seems that trial courts are setting aside mortgage foreclosures and voiding mortgages with increasing frequency and for various reasons. With no guidance yet from the appellate courts, title examiners are at a loss as to how to evaluate foreclosure titles and identify what of the many mistakes made by mortgage lenders are potentially fatal to those titles.

Join Ward P. Graham, Esq. of WFG National Title Insurance Company and Gary W. Cruickshank, Esq. for an analysis of recent cases and a frank discussion of how to deal with the challenges posed by these decisions when evaluating titles coming out of foreclosures.

Faculty:

Joe Boynton, Esq.
Joe Boynton, Attorney at Law, Worcester

Ward B. Graham, Esq.
WFG National Title Insurance Company, Lynnfield

Gary W. Cruickshank, Esq.
Gary W. Cruickshank, Attorney at Law, Boston
