The Deed is one of the oldest and most respected forms of legal documents, used as the means of conveying and taking title to real property. Although the contents and provisions of the standard Deed have changed throughout the years, the basic form remains largely the same. In this one hour program, our speakers will discuss the different manners in which title may be held, the different types of estates in land, the requisite parts of a deed, and the requirements for effective and accurate drafting, delivery and recording of a Deed. They will also discuss fraudulent transfers and the process for setting aside a Deed.
