There are many things that should be considered when purchasing a home. Are there any liens on the property? Did any judgments attach? What is the condition of the property? Does the seller have marketable title? All of these things are very important and they can be the difference between a good transaction and a bad transaction.
We handle all of these issues for our clients. Our process includes an in-depth title search, municipal lien search, and dealing with various other professionals to ensure that your interests are being protected and provided for. Sometimes issues may arise where a contract extension is needed or the buyer / seller decides to walk away from the transaction; we have a lot of experience representing clients in these situations as well.
St. Louis Morris, P.A.’s attorneys are licensed Title agents. Our Title policies are issued on behalf of Old Republic National Title Insurance Company. It is important and beneficial to have a reputable title insurer. You may be wondering why Title Insurance is necessary in the purchase of a residential property. Research shows that for many consumers, the purchase of a home is one of the largest expenses in their lifetime. It is important to protect your great investment. As experienced real estate and title attorneys, we will review the Title commitment, help clear any title issues that may arise, and then, with our underwriter’s approval, issue a Title policy to cover your purchase. Generally speaking, there are two kinds of Title Insurance:
- Lender’s policy: this policy covers the lender’s interest. This is applicable when there is a lender that a provided a loan to you for the purchase of the home;
- Owner’s policy: this policy covers the purchaser’s interest. It provides protection in the event that there are title issues that existed prior to the purchase that were not resolved.
