Title Defects

Title defects are any claims or other factors that could cause the title to a property to be called into question or declared invalid. This can occur in a number of ways, from a deed containing ambiguous language to an incorrect legal description of the property, the property being encumbered by an easement or there may be an outstanding lien. The most common type of title defect is a claim by one owner to have a marketable title to a property when, in fact, it is owned by another.
