HLA Submission to LSO re. Title Insurance Practices

Nov 13, 2018
A response to the Law Society of Ontario and to the Chair of the Advertising and Fee Arrangements Issue Working Group's call for comment was recently forwarded by the Real Estate Subcommittee on behalf of the members of The Hamilton Law Association. The subcommittee addressed the perceived controversy identified by the Working Group on the matter of title insurance practices and to advise how title insurance intersects with the services provided by a lawyer on a real estate transaction, in the hope that it will clarify the realities of these transactions, the role of the lawyer and the basis for compensation and insurance products in modern conveyancing practices.
