The history of a property title can be very muddled. Because ownership can change hands numerous times or because old tax liens or other obligations may not have been paid, you may suddenly find that you are on the hook for an action from another party who claims to have an interest in your title. Before you purchase a home or piece of property, the title insurance company should have done a thorough examination of the chain of title to make sure any adverse claims or defects in the deed have been rectified. If they somehow missed a defect, you may need a South Florida real estate lawyer for help in making a title insurance claim.
The purpose of title insurance is to protect the purchaser of real estate and the holder of a mortgage against loss from defective titles, liens, and encumbrances. Protecting a buyer against loss is accomplished by the issuance of a title insurance policy. But like any insurance claim, you may find that the insurance company drags its feet or tries to find a way to avoid paying out a claim or avoids defending a disputed title. If this happens, a Fort Lauderdale real estate attorney may be able to force the title insurance company to honor its policy and honor your claim.
