Titles and Records New

Course Description

Titles and Records.

Course Category: Real Estate.

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 lessons.

  • 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.



Upon completion of this course, the student will:

  • Understand the process of recording
  • Recognize different types of public records
  • Know the methods of property conveyance
  • Recognize the difference between constructive and actual notice
  • Be able to identify evidence of titles.
  • Be able to explain title insurance and coverage
  • Recognize the different types of property ownership
  • Be able to differentiate between the various types of deeds
