  • Review the forms of deeds that commonly are used in Colorado: General Warranty Deeds, Special Warranty Deeds, Bargain and Sale Deed, and Quit Claims Deeds. What are the differences among these deed forms? Why are the differences important? Why does the title company prepare some kinds of deeds but not all kind of deeds?
  • Other forms of deeds: Beneficiary Deeds, Personal Representative Deeds, Trustee’s Deeds, Confirmation Deeds, and Grand Deeds (not an approved form in Colorado)
  • Discussion of liens – voluntary and involuntary liens, why they matter
  • Deeds of Trust and Mortgages are voluntary liens
  • Judgement Liens, Tax Liens, and Assessment Liens are involuntary liens
  • Bankruptcy issues: not really a lien, but a pending bankruptcy acts like a lien since property cannot be conveyed without dealing with the bankruptcy (getting the property removed from the bankruptcy estate)
