Join Lora Freehling, Berrien County Register of Deeds, and Attorney Stephen Smith as they present information on a properly worded deed. All too often families do not understand the full impact of not having a deed worded properly and the unintended consequences that follow. Lora will be here to discuss the importance of the Register of Deeds office and understanding one’s property deed(s). There will also be a time for questions and answers. Information on the exact day, date and time will follow in the February newsletter. Stay tuned!
