Residential Real Estate Closings 101: Mastering the Basics

About the Program: 
This comprehensive seminar is designed to take its attendees to the heart of the residential real estate transaction, from the opening of a file through its closure. Faculty will explore the intricacies of the closing process—understanding and operating the day-to-day—from what to do when you receive the file, to how to work with lenders, how to understand title commitments and title insurance options, to how to put together closing and conveyance documents, including the HUD-1 Settlement Statement. The experienced attorney will also benefit by gaining insight into the complexities of issues that arise before, during, and after the actual closing.
