You’ve looked at several properties, and finally, you found the perfect one you like. But before you go ahead and make the purchase, are you confident enough that you will be its sole rightful owner? Sometimes, the seller who claims to own the property does not in fact, legally own the property. As such, a clear title is crucial for any real estate transaction. But as the buyer, it can be very hard to grasp exactly what a title is and how it can affect you and your property in the long run. A title company can protect you from these title clouds.

Here are some more reasons why you should contact a title company before buying a major purchase:
- Unknown heirs
When a property owner dies without leaving a will, there are cases when previously unknown family members with a legitimate claim to the property appear. This can cause delays in a real estate transaction for months on end. A title company can protect you against these disputes and provide you with full ownership of your property.
Sometimes, a seller may forge a signature from the actual property owner in order to speed up a sale. This can also cause a delay in the sale for months. Title companies are skilled with in-depth research so that you won’t have to face forgery issues later on from the actual owner.
