Searching for the Right Paragraphs for your Report on Title

More than 400 lawyers used Lexsure’s Report on Title paragraph database last month seeking assistance in drafting this crucial document in the conveyancing process.

Firms struggle to find the time to create a firm-wide index of newly created paragraphs to be made available for future use. Lawyers readily admit to me that notwithstanding the constant moving landscape of conveyancing risk, their precedent Report on Title is updated no more than once or twice a year.

Here is a list of the most common search terms used by lawyers seeking assistance:
  1. Ground Rent
  2. Source of Funds
  3. Lease Term
  4. Minimum Lease Term
  5. Unexpired
  6. Headlease
  7. Article 4
  8. Septic
  9. Solar
  10. Chancel

The e-ROT search tool can be found here.

Almost one thousand firms registered for last year’s webinar series on Reports on Title by Lexsure. Three more webinars entitled ‘How and Why Technology is Changing the way Conveyancers Report to Clients’ have been added for 2018. At the time of writing this blog I understand that there are only a few spaces left. Bookings can be made here.
