Titles and Records.

Course Description: .

Recording real property documents in the public record gives the public access to information they may need in order to clarify the condition of the title to a property. The simple process of recording helps trace the history of the title by tracking past and current owners of the title as well as any previous liens and encumbrances placed on the title. The act of recording real property documents allows grantors to warrant grantees a valid deed conveyance and smooth purchase transaction and to provide proof of ownership in case any future complications arise. This course includes the following lesson.

  • Public Records and Recording
  • Titles
  • Title Transfers
  • Real Estate Practice

The terms title and deed do not mean the same thing; therefore, individuals cannot use the terms interchangeably. The title refers to ownership of a property or parcel of real estate whereas the deed refers to the document that transfers the ownership property from the grantor to the grantee. This course will explain the process of recording, give examples of public records and describe the different deeds of conveyances. The different lessons in this course work together to help grantors and grantees avoid any future complications concerning the ownership rights to a property or resolve any disputes that arise.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

.

  • Understand the process of recording

Course Description.

In order to own and convey property in a market economy it is necessary for that property to be assigned a specific monetary value. This process, unlike, say, that of assigning value to durable goods-which have specific materials, production and marketing costs-can be somewhat more involved. With property, the fixed costs-building materials and labor costs-are always accompanied by more esoteric factors that go to make property more (or less) valuable. Becoming a member of the group that understands and applies these factors is a bit more complex than simply being able to understand a balance sheet.

This course covers the theories, rules, duties and activities that guide the real estate appraisal process. An appraiser must also conduct him or herself professionally, ethically and honestly. There are guidelines regarding professionally and ethically correct behavior of appraisers as well which are also covered by this course. The entire appraisal process should be carried out in the best possible way for consumers and licensees as well as the real estate market.

Upon completion of this module, the student will be able to.

  • Understand the basics of and common terms relating to real estate value estimation and appraisal.
  • List the traits that a qualified appraiser must possess.
  • Identify the value principles applied in the appraisal of property.
  • Employ the value theories in the appraisal process to calculate the price at which property should be traded.

  • Discuss the three value approached in detail.
  • Pursue the eight steps of real estate appraisal to reach a purchase price for a property
  • Understand an appraisal report.
  • Know the difference between an appraisal certificate and license.

FAIR HOUSING

COURSE INTRODUCTION.

All Americans have the right to attempt to purchase, rent, or finance housing for themselves in the location of their choosing, regardless of their gender, religion, handicap, color, race, national origin or familial status. To help ensure that no one is deprived of this right, Congress passed the federal Fair Housing Act in 1968. This Act prohibits unethical discrimination by those who rent, sell and finance residential real estate. This module discusses the federal Fair Housing Act, as well as other anti – discrimination laws that directly affect the real estate industry and the financing of real estate. Upon completion of this course, you will understand the legislation, its purpose, and importance. You will also be familiar with the penalties for violating such statutes and have a better understanding of how you can avoid unethical discrimination in your everyday conduct.

This module includes the following lessons.

  • Introduction to Fair Housing
  • Discrimination
  • Legal Protections against Discrimination
  • Enforcement of Fair Housing Laws
  • How to Avoid Actions that are Discriminatory

Initially, this module will introduce the federal Fair Housing Act, explaining the groups of people whom it covers and the various wrongs against which the law is meant to protect those people. In addition, we will discuss the meaning of discrimination and the existence of certain exemptions to the law. After detailing the Fair Housing Act, this course will move on to other relevant statutes, such as the federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    A deed is one of the most common instruments of title conveyance and all real estate professionals need a clear understanding of a deed’s use and purpose. This course illustrates the difference between title and a deed, as well as the Texas statutes pertaining to and the attributes of lawful conveyance.

    The first lesson of this course explains the difference between title, which refers to lawful ownership, and a deed, which is an instrument that conveys title.

Grouping deeds into two categories, those with warranties and those without, we study the types of deeds and their different uses. All states have their own relative legislation pertaining to title conveyance. This course outlines relevant Texas statutes that impact deeds, including those that differentiate between the illegal practice of law and the lawful role of real estate professionals.

    The last section of this course is a real estate practice lesson, which presents real world dilemmas that licensees might face in the field. It gives the student the opportunity to display his or her new knowledge and utilize the material in this module to properly manage ethical predicaments and problematic transactions.

    Course Description.

    Clear, mutually – acceptable agreements are an essential component of the legal transference of ownership. In the practice of real estate, contracts are the instruments used to describe and record the agreements surrounding the conveyance of property. Some type of contract is nearly always involved, whether a salesperson is promising to sell a property within a specified period of time, a prospective buyer is placing an offer on a house or a seller is considering an offer on property.

    Before entering into a legally binding agreement, real estate professionals must fully understand the contracts that govern their industry. Failure to understand contracts opens a licensee to various kinds of liability and can seriously damage one’s professional reputation. Therefore, it is vital that real estate professionals learn this material so that they can protect themselves against errors, oversights and misunderstandings.

    In this module you will learn about the types of general contracts as well as the different kinds of real estate contracts. The module provides the student with an overview of the various types of contracts: bilateral, unilateral, implied, express, executed, executory, valid, void, voidable and unenforceable. Once the student is introduced to the different types of contracts, he or she learns what makes a contract legally enforceable, this being the five components that make a contract valid: mutual assent, legally competent parties, consideration, lawful objective and adherence to a statute of frauds. This module includes the following lessons.

    • Types of Contracts
    • Features of a Legally Valid Contract
    • Contract Fulfillment
    • Real Estate Contracts

    The fifth and concluding lesson in this module presents real – world dilemmas and concrete applications of the information presented in the rest of the course. As the student completes this module, he or she should try to develop a broad picture of environmental issues and how they fit into the larger practice of real estate; the last lesson will help with this project by presenting comprehensive content questions, practice problems and case studies.

    Course Description:

    In many states, a licensee has no official duties throughout the closing process. This leads some real estate licensees to believe that their job ends when the purchase and sales contract is signed, but this is not a prudent stance.

Licensees who are familiar with closing procedures and settlement costs can stay involved and use their skills to help ensure that their transactions end well.
