The Real Estate Lawyers Association of North Carolina, Inc. (RELANC) is committed to engaging in energetic advocacy on behalf of North Carolina real property owners and the attorneys who represent them. Membership has grown to over 400 since its inception in 2011.
We are delighted to announce a membership matching drive hosted by Investors Title Insurance Company. Investors often matches dues for new and renewal members who attend their annual Fall Gathering, and this past year extended the matching to February 2018. This means any new members who join between October 2017 and February 2018 will net a $100 match from Investors Title!
This year we have been integrally involved with more than a dozen legislative issues. We have long-standing partnerships with the NC Closing Attorney Best Practices Task Force, hosting webinars such as Contract to Closing: Protecting Your Clients and their Money from Cyber Fraud. Members and officers are currently serving on the NC Land Records Task Force, the NC Bar Association Real Property Section Council, and the Secretary of State’s E-Mortgage Closing Advisory Committee.
Our focus includes research, educational activities, and promotional and advertising campaigns regarding consumer protection abuses and practices which destabilize communities and are harmful to North Carolina citizens, their assets, real property owners, the financial industry, and the State of North Carolina.
We also are committed to pursue policies, laws and regulations at local, State and Federal levels to combat, prevent, and seek compensation from persons or entities which engage in practices harmful to the client-consumers represented by North Carolina real estate attorneys.
