Uniform Simplification of Land Transfers Act Law and Legal Definition

Uniform Simplification of Land Transfers Act was drafted by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) in 1958. It was initially a part of the Uniform Land Transactions Act and still complements it. The purpose of the act is to protect consumer buyers and borrowers against practices that may cause unreasonable risk and loss. The act deals with conveyancing, recording, priorities, liens, encumbrances, construction liens, land records and include a complete marketable record title act. The act contains numerous provisions that simplify and shorten title examinations and further the security and certainty of land titles.

Parts of this act were used to create the Model Marketable Title Act and the Uniform Construction Lien Act.
