Title Examination & Insurance

Title Examination and Insurance Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Nothing could be worse than finding a perfect property and negotiating good terms only to find that the title is defective. This can lead to costly, lengthy litigation.

When a property is under contract, a South Florida title inspector will go in to make sure that the person selling the property is legally able to do so.

  • The goal is to prevent another party from stepping in to claim legal title based on a lien or other debt.
  • Through a thorough review of the chain of the title by a title examination attorney, any potential defects can be found before they need to be litigated.
