Did you ever sign a mortgage enforceability opinion? Did you ever think about your potential liability for giving the opinion? Or wonder how to qualify your opinion or what opinions are “market”? The members of this Committee consider these issues and more. The Committee has co-authored a form of model mortgage opinion with commentary giving practitioners an excellent education in opinion giving for simple mortgages. The Committee currently is considering revising and modernizing the model form of opinion. If you want a sounding board for opinion-related questions or issues, or if you would like to participate in revising the model opinion form, then join this Committee.
Committee membership is open to members of the Real Property Law Section.
