Legislative Advocacy

Because so much of the trustee’s function is defined by state statutes, UTA’s lobbyists maintain a constant presence in the state capitals. Due to the highly technical nature of real estate laws, UTA provides valuable input to the legislature to ensure that laws are properly written.

The association is also active in affirmatively seeking legislative improvements in state law. In recent years, UTA has sponsored legislation in the areas of distribution of foreclosure sale proceeds, collection of defaults under deeds of trust, the language to be included in recorded notices of default, reconveyances and others.
