Understanding Stroudsburg Title Insurance
One of the more complex issues for many parties concerning real estate acquisition is title insurance. What is it, and why do you need it? In short, title insurance protects both those buying property and the mortgage lenders in the event that there is a defect or another problem with the title. In order to get title insurance, you need to have a “clean title.” A clean title means that there are no legal actions pending against the property, unpaid taxes, people who actually should have inherited the property, or other issues that would prevent it from being sold according to the terms of the agreement.
Your lawyer can investigate to ensure that the title is clean, and that the party selling the property owns it fairly and is able to sell it according to the terms of your agreement.
Real Estate Closing in Stroudsburg
The first and most important step in purchasing real property is understanding your rights under Pennsylvania law. For example, what rights do you have before and after closing? What are your rights in the event that you discover a property defect? What are your rights if you have a dispute concerning real estate boundary lines or title insurance coverage? An experienced Stroudsburg real estate attorney can answer these questions and many more.
An advocate at our firm can help to make sure that you know your rights when it comes to real estate law, and that you have experienced counsel on your side to make sure that your rights are respected. Then, the buyer can obtain title insurance, which can protect the buyer and mortgage lender in the event that a defect or other issue does arise.
