2 creditsSince the dawn of civilization, society has recognized the need to create and maintain public records. Title to the entire State of New Jersey was originally vested in King Charles II of the United Kingdom after the conquest of the area from the Dutch. Today, government offices maintain these records. The Attorney or Title Officer reviews the search material and after applying the relevant legal principals determines the validity and/or insurability of the title under review.
3 credits. How they arise, how long they last how do you get rid of them. In the past, a judgment became a lien upon its entry on the Civil Judgment and Order Docket through an automatic process. As the result of a statutory amendment, an abstract of the judgment must be submitted to the Clerk, together with the requisite filing fee, in order to create a lien. Entry upon the minute book of the court clerk is insufficient. A judgment lien is purely statutory in nature; it was unknown at common law.
2 Credits. The major lien disclosed on the county level is a mortgage. A mortgage is a limited conveyance of real property, the purpose of which is to create a security interest for an underlying debt, usually a mortgage note. Understanding the mortgage, how it is recorded, and how to remove it from the record is a core understanding of the Title Insurance industry.
