Why should title professionals care about strategic alliances? Settlement service providers are an important source of business for title agents. Settlement service providers like lenders and real estate brokers, who are finding their margins shrinking are looking for supplemental income opportunities. As a result, affiliated business arrangements, advertising agreements, desk rentals and normal promotional activities have been on the rise. Learn how you can take advantage of these opportunities while avoiding a RESPA violation.

This two-part webinar series will look at these strategic alliances, but not through a tired recitation of the RESPA requirements. Instead, Phillip Schulman and Holly Spencer Bunting, partners at Mayer Brown, will use real life scenarios to educate you on the doís and doníts for establishing these business relationships in compliance with RESPA.

The first webinar, Affiliated Agencies, which was held on Wednesday October 2, 2019, will take a look at the proper creation of affiliated title agencies.

The second webinar, Marketing Activities, which was held on Wednesday November 20, 2019, will take a close look at advertising agreements, desk rentals and promotional activities.
