What Does Having a Clear Real Estate Title Mean?

Having a clear real estate title to the land means that there are no claims against it.  For example, a person not involved in the transaction might claim they have a deed or lease giving them ownership or the right to posses the property, another person might claim they hold an easement giving them a right to access across the property, and someone else might have a lien on the property securing it as a repayment of debt.  All these issues could make the property unmarketable.

To establish a clear real estate title, a title insurance company will do a search that begins with the current individual holding the real estate title and move backwards until the original U.S. patent that established the deed is located.  Not only does this create a chain-of-title in the property, but is also discloses other issues such as grants of easement, and liens made against the property. 

Real estate title can be confusing, but when working with a reputable company like Title Junction , we can help.  Please give us a call we look forward to hearing from you soon!
