Deeds New

Course Description

Course Description:


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. We detail the terms of a valid contract and discuss the statutes of frauds that apply to all contracts, including deeds. 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.

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to.

  • List the general requirements of a legally enforceable contract.
  • Describe the difference between title and deed.
