|Description:||This primer on national real estate laws addresses public and private rights, and transfers of title. While real estate law is governed by each respective state, there are many similar laws from state to state, and some federal laws that affect all real estate transactions in the U.S. Learn the state and federal court systems and how they handle real estate issues. We'll cover legal descriptions, necessary searches and where they are found. Piece by piece, we'll build a chain of title - what an abstractor is looking for, the various indices and how to find missing links in the chain of title.|
