Did Ya Know

Is that even English?

January 4, 2017

So as many of you already know the land title business has its own language. It is English, of course, but is laced with a multitude of words, phrases and terms beyond the comprehension of non-title folk. The land title lingo we speak here in Louisiana is stranger than most because of our Spanish and French heritage, I mean hello, “Dation En Paiement”, right? Perhaps the greatest difficulty in learning to comprehend and speak in “title speak” is the fact that we have to not only know the meaning of a term but understand how that term is applied in certain situations. To help with that I located a handy glossary of terms from the LTI course and have saved it as “glossary of abstracting terms” in the “Continuing Education” folder in work; take a look it may be of some help.
