Lady Bird or Enhanced Life Estate Deed
by Jim Boggs | 2015/11/23

Does anyone have a Lady Bird or Enhanced Life Estate Deed you can email to

 I found an example template, however, several words were not legible. There is a particular title company that is very strict as to what is acceptable, where-as, other title companies are more lenient.


The language I am looking for, follows this example (The words in red are just guessing! )

"India" is not the problem
by Thomas Pryde | 2015/04/16

In the past few weeks I have been highlighting the fact that the industry is rapidly changing. Some of this change is inevitable and worthwhile, but some changes may prove to undermine the health of the industry as a whole.

One of the most common changes described as being bad for the industry is usually referenced by one word: "India." For some, this has become a shorthand term for off-shoring, and it is usually used as a negative or pejorative term. However, we need to be clear that "India" isn't the problem.

Independent Abstractors: Well Trained Specialists (Part Three)
by Thomas Pryde | 2015/04/09


There are certainly opportunities to succeed in this market.

There needs to be a clear understanding of what technology can do. Perfection in the document chain is not a promise that technology will soon deliver, but there are some direct advantages that technology can provide.

Independent Abstractors: Dying Breed or Valued Specialists? (Part One)
by Thomas Pryde | 2015/03/19

The prevailing view among some industry leaders seems to be that the independent abstractor is a dying breed, the last vestige of an ancient way of doing business. This is attributed to the rapidly expanding digitization of title documents and new technology solutions that are being designed to quickly and efficiently obtain and deliver those documents to their clients. This is one example where technology has made promises well beyond what it can actually provide.
