Title Examinations in Duplin County Real Estate

In a real estate transaction, title examinations are one of the primary elements that must be handled in a proper manner. The purpose of a title examination is to ensure that the property is suitable for sale by assessing whether encumbrances exist. Anything which could disrupt the sale is considered an encumbrance. An examination will assess whether there are unpaid tax liens or other restrictions against the title of the property. During a free case evaluation, we can further discuss what can be included in your title examination. Speak with our Duplin County real estate transaction attorneys today for further information on your particular issue.

Chain of Title Examination

Title examinations take place when a property is under contract. The buyer and seller can undergo inspections which can last up until the closing of the property. If anything wrong on the title of the property is found, the buyer is given the opportunity to terminate their part in the sale. An examination is important so that the buyer does not obtain a property that either belongs to another individual or carries unpaid debts which could lead to another individual claiming ownership. At Hunter & Price, P.A., we can review the history of ownership, which is considered the chain of the title. As qualified lawyers, our inspection will include a review of the truss, wills and deeds involved in that property's title.
