Charles Cain, SVP, Agency, Midwest, WFG National Title Insurance Company

What your agency did to be successful in the past will likely not be enough to succeed in 2014 and beyond.  Regulatory changes, market shifts and new client demands all mean that title agents will have to reconsider the way they do business…and soon.   On December 17, join us to consider some of the new challenges emerging for title agents as well as two real solutions available to WFG agents. 
  • How does your agency ensure data security as will be required by the CFPB and your lending clients?  To what extent does your e-mail need to be encrypted?  Is your firewall adequate?  How secure is your network, and is that secure enough?
  • Will your methods for ensuring data integrity—especially where inaccurate data could negatively affect closing tolerance–meet the standards required by your lenders?
  • How does an agent undertake the very real operational changes that will be required by lenders, underwriters and enforcement agencies while maintaining his or her margins?
  • Are your settlement, closing and even recording procedures in line with new consumer protection requirements?
This is a free webinar open to title agents, settlement services professionals, real estate attorneys and industry executives who take their operations practices and compliance strategies seriously.   Expect future seminars on topics of interest to you from WFG National Title Insurance Company, a partner and trusted resource for title agents nationwide.

Wells Fargo v. Commonwealth: the death knell for equitable subrogation? – Lexology

Lenders, title insurance companies and their agents should be aware that on April 21, 2011, the Supreme Court of Kentucky issued a decision that could have a significant effect on Kentucky courts’ application of the doctrine of equitable subrogation in Kentucky.  Wells Fargo Bank, Minnesota, N.A. v. Commonwealth, — S.W.3d —, 2011 WL 1620578 (Ky. Apr. 21, 2011).  While not often litigated at the appellate level (in part because of its widely accepted application), the doctrine of equitable subrogation has long been a reliable tool used by lenders and their title insurance companies to ensure that mortgage loans intended to have first priority actually receive that first priority position.  But the Wells Fargo decision limits the doctrine’s application to such an extent that it could threaten the viability of equitable subrogation in Kentucky on a going-forward basis.
