Vermont Paralegal Day: May 15th

This day is an opportunity to recognize paralegals across Vermont for their efforts to ensure that quality, efficient and affordable legal representation is provided in Vermont.

Thank you for your hard work, contribution to the quality of legal services offered and dedication to the legal profession.

We Have the Breakdown You're Looking For


The Best Practices were drafted in 2013, as a response to increased regulatory oversight of lenders, who were required to ensure that their third-party providers, including title and settlement agents, were properly vetted. ALTA conceived of the best practice ‘pillars’ so that lenders have a set of benchmarks, or ‘pillars,’ with which they can assess whether their settlement agents have policies and procedures in place that enable them to act in accordance with state and federal requirements. ALTA’s new revisions focus on three pillars: Pillar 2 (Escrow Accounting), Pillar 3 (Privacy and Information Security to Protect Non-Public, Personal Information) and Pillar 4 (Settlement). Join us in May for a presentation of the new revisions, a panel discussion of how to practically implement these new requirements in your business, and a live Q&A session.

Each one-hour webinar is eligible for one CLE credit in the following states: AL, CT, GA, FL, ME, NH, RI, TN, and VT.

H.227: Uniform Power of Attorney Bill

Effective July 1, 2023, Vermont will presumably have a new Uniform Power of Attorney Act. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted the Uniform POA Bill H.227 out of committee and it will very likely be passed by the Senate and the House. Standing in the shoes of our Agents, CATIC provided extensive comments and revisions to H.227, all of which were included. Hearing your concerns, Vermont will continue to have the so-called real estate carve out POA form for limited use in real estate transactions and in an easy to execute and record form. We will present on the Uniform POA Act at our June 7th, 2023, CLE and have the POA forms available for your use. For general powers of attorney and estate planning, the Act is voluminous and will require detailed review for its use. CATIC is dedicated to the success of your real estate practices, and we appreciate your dedication to your business relationship with us. Thank you!
