Course Description

A deed is a written instrument that is commonly used to convey the title to real property. Consequently, all real estate professionals must have a clear understanding of the uses and purposes of different types of deeds. This module also illustrates the difference between the concept of title and the concept of a deed. The first lesson of this module reviews the requirements of a legally enforceable contract. A deed is a legal contract between two parties for land conveyance; therefore, the requirements for a deed to legally convey the title to real property are also reviewed and explained in detail. The second lesson of this module covers types of deeds and their different uses. Types of deeds for voluntary land conveyance differ in the extent of covenants and warranties on the title that are offered to the grantee. The most common types of deeds for voluntary land conveyance are general warranty deeds, special warranty deeds, bargain and sale deeds and quitclaim deeds. The lesson then identifies other types of deeds that may be used for special purposes. All states have distinctive legislation pertaining to title conveyance. As a result, the third lesson of this module outlines relevant state statutes that affect the creation and execution of deeds, including those that differentiate between the unauthorized practice of law and the lawful role of real estate professionals. The last lesson in this module is a real estate practice lesson in which the student is presented with real world situations that licensees might face in the field. This lesson gives the student an opportunity to employ his or her new knowledge, and to use the material in this module to properly manage ethical predicaments and problematic transactions.

The purpose of this course is to offer a broad understanding of the purpose and execution of the 1031 tax – deferred exchange. This class will empower you to provide your clients with an alternative to paying capital gains taxes, however the course is not intended to allow or suggest that the student is now empowered to give tax advice. Real estate professionals should always recommend that a client get accurate advice from a qualified tax specialist.

When engaging in real estate transactions it is always recommended that the client seek the advice of a qualified tax specialist as tax laws frequently change, and in many cases the real estate professional does not know the client’s total tax picture. There are circumstances in which the 1031 tax – deferred exchange is not the best avenue for a particular client at a particular time. On the other hand, it is important from the standpoint of professional liability that real estate experts at least explain the concept of the 1031 exchange to his investor client.

This module includes the following lessons.

  • Introduction to 1031 Real Estate Exchange
  • Mechanics of the 1031 Exchange
  • Practice and Case Studies

    This module introduces students to the terminology and concepts surrounding titles and records. We will do this by explaining the procedures involved in conveying real estate and in recording the legal evidence of conveyance and ownership. The public recording of real estate documents ? such as deeds, mortgages or tax liens ? makes information regarding a particular parcel of land or property readily available to anyone who seeks to know more about the ownership history of a particular piece of property. All of the parties who are involved in real estate conveyances need to understand the process of recording and title transfers; this knowledge will help them avoid many of the confusions and complications that can arise surrounding the documentation of property ownership.

    An American National Standard is developed through a consensus process that involves those organizations and individuals directly and materially affected by the existence of a standard. A standard itself is a voluntary guide for producers and consumers. The American National Standards Institute is the central body responsible for identifying a single, consistent set of voluntary standards and verifying that the principles of openness and due process are heeded. All American National Standards are subject to periodic review and revision.

    A standard allows individuals and organizations that use different terminologies based on different points of view to communicate, cooperate, and calculate quantities on a common basis. This standard promotes these goals in the hope that square footage calculation can become an item of agreement rather than a point of contention between groups with different interests and concerns.

    This standard for the calculation and reporting of above – grade square footage and below – grade square footage in single – family houses is offered for voluntary application. The standard must be applied as a whole. The standard is not meant to replace or supersede any legal or otherwise required existing area measurement method. It may be used in a proposed, new or existing single – family house of any style but is not applicable to apartment/multifamily buildings. It does not cover room dimensions.

    Before the adoption of the standard, no nationwide standard existed in the United States for measuring square footage in single – family houses. By contrast, a standard applicable to commercial buildings has been in effect for 80 years. In 1915, the Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA) developed a standard method for measuring floor area in office buildings. The BOMA standard was revised in 1952,1955,1971,1980 and 1989 and now bears the title Standard Method for Measuring Floor Area in Office Buildings, ANSI Z65.1 – 1980 (Reaffirmed 1989).

    Note: This foreword is not part of American National Standard Z765 – 1996.

    This module is deigned as a 3 – hour course teaches those in the real estate community about estimating gross living area. This module includes two practice exams that will help the student prepare for the module exam. Understand that these are for practice only. The student must pass a comprehensive final exam to receive credit for the module.

    This module includes the following lessons.

  • American National Standard for Single – Family Residential Buildings
  • Measurement and Calculation
  • Appraisal Values
  • The Appraisal Process
  • Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice
  • Valuation Analysis
  • Summary and Other Guidelines
