Rhode Island Titles and Records
Rhode Island Titles and Records introduces students to the terminology and concepts surrounding titles and records. We will do this by explaining the procedures involved in conveying real estate and in recording the legal evidence of conveyance and ownership. The public recording of real estate documents – such as deeds, mortgages or tax liens – makes information regarding a particular parcel of land or property readily available to anyone who seeks to know more about the ownership history of a particular piece of property. All of the parties who are involved in real estate conveyances need to understand the process of recording and title transfers; this knowledge will help them avoid many of the confusions and complications that can arise surrounding the documentation of property ownership. In this module, the student will learn about public records and how to record them as well as the methods of conveying property ownership. This module includes the following lessons: • Recording and Public Records • Titles • Title Transfers The concluding lesson in this module presents real-world dilemmas and concrete applications of the information presented in the rest of the course. As the student completes this module, he or she should try to develop a broad picture of titles and records and how they fit into the larger practice of real estate; the last lesson will help with this project by presenting comprehensive content questions, practice problems and case studies.
Requirements for Completing Rhode Island Titles and Records
There are three important steps to completing a course:
- Complete ALL lessons in the course by answering each question correctly at least twice. Most questions are timed and need to be answered within the prescribed time for credit. A lesson is not complete until it is checked off on the main menu.
- Once you have completed the lessons on the computer, you must submit a signed “Student Affidavit” that you personally completed the entire course yourself. Under state law, this Affidavit must be received before a Course Completion Certificate can be issued or your course completion can be electronically reported to your state (if applicable).
- If a final exam is required, you must schedule a proctored exam (or take an online exam if available in your state) and pass the exam (please see “State Requirements” page for the specific passing score required in your state.) (The “Course Available” page will indicate which courses require a final exam, and whether they require a proctor or are available online.)
Once these three steps have been completed, we will issue a Course Completion Certificate or electronically report your course completion to your state (if applicable).
