Securing Titles Before A Sale
If you are preparing to sell real estate, you want to make certain to avoid any potential title insurance claims that could undermine the transaction at a later date. Similarly, if you’re a buyer, it’s very important for you to receive clear title. Either way, the risk of a title defect caused by an undischarged lien or some other title problem in the past can have real consequences for the future.
At the Law Offices of Roche and Roche, PC, in Franklin, Massachusetts, our lawyers are highly experienced in a full range of real estate matters, including title insurance claims. To learn more about how we can help you conduct a smooth and efficient transaction, call us at 508-528-8300. We conduct title searches and cure defects for mortgage lenders, property sellers, property buyers, title insurance companies, commercial developers and mortgage companies (both local and national).
Researching Possible Title Problems
It is always possible that a prior owner of a given property had unresolved encumbrances on it. There may have been a second mortgage on the property that wasn’t properly discharged or a lien that was paid off but not released. Our role, as experienced real estate attorneys, is to make sure any such defects get cleared up.
Curing Title Defects
When a potential title defect does arise, our knowledge of real estate law enables us to research the nature of the defect and cure it as quickly as possible. Whether it is a simple title defect or a more complex issue, we will seek to resolve the matter quickly and effectively.
It makes sense to be proactive and talk with one of our lawyers in order to avoid title insurance claims or other legal snags that could get in the way of your transaction.
