Don‘t Steal My House

Preventing Fraudulent Conveyances of Property

The growing problem of real estate fraud continues to plague homeowners, lenders, title companies and others who transact in real estate. Deeds, mortgages and other instruments are often placed on record without the knowledge or consent of a homeowner, leaving unwary buyers and unprotected owners with expensive and seemingly insoluble tangled title issues. This seminar will explore not only how to handle a “quiet title” case intended to clear the record of a fraudulent instrument, but will further address new and innovative laws and techniques designed to help prevent those documents from being recorded at all, including electronic notarization and electronic filing of documents. Real estate attorneys, litigators, estate planning attorneys and divorce attorneys will all find aspects of the seminar pertinent to their respective practice, as the presentations will involve evidentiary questions, recording issues, and techniques for identifying and avoiding problems involving property fraud. Why attend?

• Learn how to handle a “quiet title” case • Learn how to spot and prevent fraudulent conveyances of property • Learn about electronic recording and notarization of documents • Learn what makes a document “recordable”

What is a “fraudulent transfer” of real estate? When and how do fraudulent transfers occur? Who are the players in a fraudulent transfer? How can a fraudulent document be recorded?
