The Title Standards Committee of the CBA’s Real Estate Law Section released new Title Standard 11-1-9, “Documents for Conveyance from Foreign Personal Representative to Purchaser,” effective November 7, 2009. It resolves whether the “authority of a domiciliary foreign personal representative to convey Colorado real property” is allowed by Colorado statute.
The new Title Standard was issued after publication of CBA-CLE’s 2009 Portable Green Book and the current Colorado Title Insurance Practice handbook. Owners of these volumes are urged to print the new Title Standard and place it in their books for future reference. This and future new Standards will be included in an upcoming revision to these books.
Title Standard 11.1.9 was released prior to the 2009 supplements to the Colorado Water Benchbook and Colorado Real Estate Practice, and therefore is included in both volumes.
