ISBA Board of Governors approved a new title standard and changes to
three others at its quarterly meeting earlier this month. The updates,
based on recommendations by the ISBA Real Estate & Title Law
Section’s Title Standards Committee, are now listed on the ISBA website.
The new Title Standard 16.3 pertains to tax sale proceedings
of record less than three years, and the updates include Title Standard
10.6 pertaining to the use of Iowa Code relied upon to bar use
restrictions; Title 16.1 pertaining to tax sale proceedings of record
more than 10 years; and Title Standard 16.2 pertaining to tax sale
proceedings of record more than three years.
Digital title standard manuals are available online at the
ISBA’s website by clicking on "Title Standards” under the "Practice
Tools” tab or via direct link here.
