Originally written in 1942 and called “The Illinois Law of Title Examination,” the IICLE® publication “Ward on Title Examinations” was last revised in 2005 (there is also a 2009 supplement).  It also includes the “Revised Recommended Rules for the Examination of Abstracts of Title” as adopted by the Board of Governors of the Illinois State Bar Association in 1977.  Are such materials still useful to Illinois real estate practitioners?  Yes.  How would one use them?  This session explains.
