Paralegals working in the real estate department across the country face different obstacles, while reviewing real estate titles and assisting with the closing of commercial and residential real estate transactions.

In addition, you will gain insight into what is a gap in title, why title insurance is required, what to anticipate before the closing, what to prepare for the closing and how to resolve obstacles during the closing and postclosing.
