The Importance Of Title

A deed or title is a critical element to any real estate transaction and requires extreme attention to detail to ensure a successful transaction. Missing one key term can mean big expense and problems, which may not be noticed or arise until later.

By taking possession of it, you gain control of various property rights such as the right to use land and structures for personal use, for specific business purposes or for development. The ideal situation is to have unrestricted use of the property forever, but that's rarely the case. Contingency plans are important. As you move toward closing the transaction, you'll want to perform a few title relevant tasks to determine what limitations, if any, affect the property. These include:

  • Examining the title to identify existing obligations and rights to ensure that unacceptable terms are removed or otherwise resolved
  • Securing title insurance to cover your bases and protect you and your lender just in case the examination missed something
  • Modifying any agreements or terms in the sales contract based on what you discovered in the title examination
  • Conducting an update exam before signing the paperwork and making a payment

Business owners and private individuals alike often view buying commercial or residential real estate as a prime path toward upward mobility. If you aren't careful about firming up title details before a closing, however, you might end up moving backward in the years to come. At Gerner & Kearns Co., L.P.A., our experienced real estate law lawyers are passionate about helping clients enjoy the benefits of property ownership.
