Why do I need Title Insurance?  When you purchase a home, you assume title to the property. Title is the legal right that a person has to the ownership and possession of land. However, there can be any number of prior title problems that remain undisclosed even after the most careful search of public records. These prior hidden "defects” may not be discovered for months or even years after you purchase your home. Since it is possible that someone other than you has a legal right to the property you are buying, you could be forced to defend your rights in court.


All legal documents such as Deeds, Land Contracts, Purchase Agreements, Mortgages, Discharges, Power of Attorneys, etc. can be prepared by the Law Offices of McCurdy, Wotila and Porteous.
