The Real Property Section referendum regarding updates to the Mississippi Title Examination Standards ended on May 31, 2021. The referendum passed 97% in favor, with only 3% opposed.
As a result, the Title Standards Board has published the Second Edition of its Mississippi Title Examination Standards.
