In 2018, the Executive Committee of the Real Property Section of the Mississippi Bar (the “Section”) approved the formation of a standing committee to study the formulation and development of title examination standards. After a great deal of study of the use of title examination standards in other states and many hours of research, drafting and meeting time, the committee (the “Title Standards Board”), proposed the first set of title examination standards for use in the State of Mississippi (known as the “Mississippi Title Examination Standards” or “Title Standards”). At the request of the initial Title Standards Board, the Executive Committee directed the matter of adoption of the Title Standards to the members of the Real Property Section for a vote.
Adoption of the Title Standards was approved by the Section on June 26, 2019. The Title Standards will go into effect on August 1, 2019.
