County auditor to host educational workshop on property conveyance

[Tiffin, OH Sept. 16, 2019] – Seneca County Auditor Julie Adkins announced today that her office is to host an educational workshop next month to give insight into the processes undertaken in a county’s conveyance room.
The workshop, which is to be instructed by Dennis DeCamillo, MBA, AAS, is to occur Oct. 18 from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the county’s Department of Job and Family Services Office, 900 E. CR 20.
Those who should consider attending include County Auditor staff, County Recorder staff, practicing title examiners, real estate appraisers, real estate brokers and other professionals working with real estate transfers.
The workshop will count for up-to seven hours of continuing education credit.
The course aims to provide best practice explanations for those working on real estate transfers.

Topics include:
* What is a deed and how do we distinguish between that and an affidavit?
* Giving a good impression to constituents.
* What is the county’s authority (or duty) to understand the value of the property being transferred? This is the beginning of the appraisal process, so it is very important.
* What is an easement and why do we care?
* Mineral rights: production or severed interests.
* Deed descriptions and the authority to create Conveyance Standards.

The registration fee for the course is $155 if sent by Oct. 10 and $175 if sent by Oct. 15. Payment also can be made on-site if necessary. The cost includes a workbook with sample forms and standards. Checks are payable to Diamond Point Advisors, LLC, 4414 N. Ridge Rd. W., Ashtabula, OH 44004.
