The Title Reporter — Fall 2020

October 7, 2020 | Real Estate, Zoning & Land Use | Insurance Coverage

Welcome to the Fall 2020 issue of The Title Reporter: A Legal Update for the Title Insurance Industry. This issue focuses on recent court decisions involving easements. It also discusses a factsheet released by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on disclosures of title insurance costs.

We begin this issue of The Title Reporter with a discussion of a New York court decision resolving whether a title insurance policy excluded coverage of claims for easements implied by law.

Then, we review a case from an appellate court in the state of Washington involving a quiet title action filed against an insured couple by their neighbors.

Back to the East Coast, a case out of New Jersey involves the interpretation of an easement in a lawsuit between neighboring property owners.

This issue of The Title Reporter ends with a discussion of the CFPB’s new factsheet on TRID title insurance disclosures, as well as some FAQs on title insurance also recently released by the CFPB.

Of course, we welcome your feedback.

We hope that you and yours are well, and that you all stay safe,

Michael J. Heller, David P. Leno, Peter P. McNamara, and Matthew V. Spero
