Atlanta REIA is pleased to announce that we are having our first “Meeting-Before-The-Meeting” on March 12th at 3:00 PM in a private meeting room at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map), just across down the street from where we meet for the Main Atlanta Meeting. This will be a great opportunity for those who want to get to the meeting early to mix, mingle, learn something new and avoid rush hour traffic.

Gordon CattsGordon Catts will be hosting our first meeting and will be talking about all the new changes the Georgia Superior Court Clerk Cooperative (GSCCCA) has made to their website. Now it is possible to sort by deed type (Looking for private lenders?), view a map of sales at street level (Pulling comps?), sort transactions by date (Want to get a snapshot of the market on a county level?), look up sales information by address (What did the seller pay for the property?) and view a history of the property transactions linked by date (Want to know the sales history?).

Atlanta REIA Main Meeting with Attorneys Craig Halperin, Jonathan Lyman & Other Special Guests

Guests Can RSVP Online for $10 or pay $20 at the Door

Attorney Craig HalperinAtlanta REIA is excited to announce that Attorney Craig M. Halperin and Attorney Jonathan F. Lyman, Managing Partners of Halperin Lyman, LLC, will be our main speakers at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on March 12th at 5:30 PM at the Atlanta Perimeter Hotel & Suites, located at 111 Perimeter Center West in Atlanta, where they will discuss “Title Insurance and Recording for Real Estate Investors”.

Attorney Jonathan LymanCraig and Jonathan will also attempt to address many of the relevant questions and concerns you may have regarding the validity of the paperwork that you may be using from a very well-known Atlanta guru and national speaker that is currently the subject of a federal criminal investigation for allegedly using a complicated series of trusts, LLCs and non-profit organizations to commit fraud and tax evasion.

This is a definitely a “Do Not Miss” educational opportunity for anyone involved in real estate investing. The information provided will not only help new investors to learn to setup their business and legal transactions the right way from the very beginning, but is also guaranteed to teach seasoned investors a few new lessons as well.

Did you know that if you prepare your own paperwork to hold your properties in trust, that your title may have serious flaws, your trust may not be valid and your assets may be at risk if challenged? Did you know that even if you close your properties through a competent closing attorney, that your attorney might not be using the right documents needed to ensure your continued title insurance coverage on all your properties. Join Craig and Jonathan to learn more about the closing process, how all of your title and recording fees are calculated and how to insure that all your closings are compliant, legal and insurable.
