Approaching the middle of May means springing into many things – allergies, graduations, and cleaning house. Keeping with the spirit of rejuvenation, many people decide not to keep cleaning the same house but, rather, to move into a completely new home. Maybe an empty-nester couple decides to downsize, a growing family decides to upgrade, or millennials decide it’s finally time to buy their first home. Whichever category you fall into, there is always a possibility of title defects, which also means a delay in the real estate transaction.
Don’t Deal with a Chain of Fools
I always tell people that title is like the chain on a bicycle. If there is a missing link on the chain, then the chain is defective and requires a repair in order to keep pedaling. The same concept goes for transferring a title – if there is a problem with the deed, the respective property cannot be refinanced or sold until the defect is corrected.
Common examples of title defects include:
- A missing deed or gap in the chain of title
- An outstanding lien or mortgage
- A property bought at a tax sale
- A prior owner’s failure to properly probate an estate
Quieting Those Title Defects
In order to fix title problems concerning real estate, you have to go through a legal process known as Quiet Title. When properly performed, the quiet title process corrects all title defects and frees you to refinance and/or sell your property.
