This course introduces students to the terminology and concepts surrounding titles and records. We will do this by explaining the procedures involved in conveying real estate and in recording the legal evidence of conveyance and ownership. The public recording of real estate documents – such as deeds, mortgages or tax liens – makes information regarding a particular parcel of land or property readily available to anyone who seeks to know more about the ownership history of a particular piece of property. All of the parties who are involved in real estate conveyances need to understand the process of recording and title transfers; this knowledge will help them avoid many of the confusions and complications that can arise surrounding the documentation of property ownership.
This course is a Continuing Education course approved by Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation - Real Estate Licensing.
