We provide fast, efficient real estate closing and title insurance services for residential and commercial transactions involving individuals, investors, and small businesses (including mobile closing services). If you have a lender in your transaction, you will be required to pay for title insurance for the lender’s secured loan. You are not required to obtain an owner’s policy of title insurance for yourself, but we cannot overemphasize the importance of having an owner’s title insurance policy. Owner’s title insurance protects you against defects in the title to your property which originate prior to the policy date. The lender’s policy will NOT protect you against any covered losses, which could result from title defects.
Title and Land Disputes
If there are any problems or disputes with the title to your real estate, you may need to file a lawsuit to get the court to rule that you have clear title to the property. This type of lawsuit is called a quiet title action. There are many reasons a quiet title action may be necessary such as a defect in the deeds, an improper lien against your property, ownership transferred by fraud, or some other improper means. Quiet title actions have many specific requirements that are not applicable to other types of civil lawsuits. You need an attorney who is experienced with quiet title actions to avoid the potential pitfalls involved in clearing up the title to your property.

In order for a contract to be valid, there must be a “meeting of the minds.” This means that all parties need to have a solid understanding of every contract term, and must be in mutual agreement as to the terms. Without a mutual agreement, the contract may not be legally valid and may be contested in court. In contract law, a contract dispute is usually considered a breach of contract, meaning that a party failed to perform a duty or promise that they agreed to in the contract. We assess the situation and provide the counsel you need.
