A full day course examining the use of reports on title exploring the format of a report on title and dealing with associated due diligence issues.p2

Using a precedent report on title the course will explore the practicalities of the production of a report on title.p2

Reports on title have not as yet been standardised across the profession in the same way as have many common transactional documents. A report on title produced by one firm can differ significantly from a report produced by another. Indeed, reports can differ from client to client within the same firm, and from fee earner to fee earner. Some reports are delivered on a very informal basis, exposing the lawyer to potential liabilities.p2

This course will be based on a precedent report and will look at the process of compiling a report on title, including:p2

  • Structuring the report - executive summary at the start, caveats at the end ? and drafting issues ?
  • Liability issues - to what financial consequences is the lawyer exposed?
  • Striking the balance between user-friendly reports and self-preservation
  • Clear drafting
  • Good and marketable title
  • *Site inspection (boundary issues; apparent easements)
  • Appropriate property advice in connection with environmental matters
