Discussion will cover the subjects every paralegal should know about land transactions and the documents which record the purchase, sale and leasing of real estate. Besides buyer-seller issues, you should be able to deal with title insurance companies, recorders of deeds, and to recognize land finance subjects. You will also address foreclosure of mortgages and the possibility of redeeming a mortgage that has gone into default.
