Commercial Title Insurance Refresher Course

Past Event


Do you understand the purpose of a title insurance policy and how to read a title commitment?

This three-hour refresher course is for anyone looking to learn about, or for a refresher, on commercial title insurance policies.

This course will answer such questions as:

  • What is title insurance, why is a lender’s policy important, and what to tell your client about owners policies?
  • How to read a title commitment. Section by section review and identification of possible issues to resolve before closing. 
  • Proforma vs. Marked-Up Commitment. What is the difference?
  • Review of the final title policy and what to verify.
  • Endorsements. What do they cover and why is the coverage requested? What are the most common endorsements?
  • What is a proceeding subsequent? Why they take extra time, and what are options to get your transaction closed.

If you have a specific question, or a tale of title problems, please bring them to the class.
