Title Issues

What do you do when a cloud appears in your property's chain of title?

Title insurance is one of those purchases you make hoping to never need. When a defect arises in your property's chain of title, however, you'll be very glad you had the foresight at your closing to get this protection.

I have represented property owners and title insurance policyholders (banks and homeowners) in the following types of actions:

  • Removing title defects by securing subordination agreements, releases, discharges, reformations of mortgages, discharges of mortgages and confirmatory deeds

  • Resolving title issues for properties in foreclosure, including negotiating with bank attorneys in order that debtor could sell property in lieu of foreclosure

  • Compelling court to substitute title insurance company as judgment creditor where execution had already been issued

  • Successfully petitioning Supreme Judicial Court to confirm the act of estate administrator who had sold property beyond the time allowed by law and for a lesser amount allowed by the Probate Court
