Aging in Florida: Upcoming Live Stream Offers CE Credits for FL Realtors
Elder abuse is on the rise and, as a result, protecting our aging population in Florida has become increasingly important.
You might be wondering, “What does elder abuse have to do with title insurance?”
Abuse can come in many forms, like forging a signature on a title, impersonating an attorney or bank employee, having a senior sign a legally binding document without actual consent, abuse of power by a guardian, and more. It’s especially common for wealthier individuals to get targeted – those who own a generous amount of real estate or have accumulated valuable assets.
It’s crucial for title companies, real estate professionals, and underwriters to understand what the red flags are when it comes to elder abuse so they can avoid liability. That’s why our very own underwriter, Fidelity National Financial (FNF), is hosting a special webinar for Realtors in Florida looking to earn Continuing Education (CE) credits.
Hosted by Karen Michaels, a specialist in Agency Education, this two-hour live stream will take place on Monday, September 20th from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm ET. Attendees will get a general overview of the probate process and gain a better understanding of rules and laws in the state of Florida.
This special event will not minimize risk for your company, but keep your older clients out of harm’s way. You’ll learn how to stop financial exploitation and help them start planning for the future safely and securely.
Since Florida has one of the highest populations of seniors, this live stream couldn’t be more relevant to our Florida customers and their target demographic. In fact, the American Land Title Association projects there to be 98.2 million people 65 years or older in the United States by the year 2060. And if you want to serve one of Florida’s biggest age groups, you need to be fully in the know about what risks and liabilities come with it.
Plus, there are many moving parts to a successful closing because there are several “hands in the pot.” Title companies, underwriters, realtors, and lenders all need to work in sync to ensure the best possible outcome for the homeowner. Understanding how state laws are written, especially in changing times, will benefit your entire professional network by providing protection for each stakeholder involved.
You will also be able to take the rules and principles you learn outside of the office. Use this as an opportunity to better protect your family members and own financial interest.
So, whether you want to better serve your clients, safeguard your loved ones, or minimize the risk of doing business, be sure to join FNF’s Karen Michaels on Monday, September 20th at 10:00 am ET!
