You might think having a title agency on your side is optional, but you’d be surprised by just how many little hiccups could come along on the path to homeownership. We’ve listed some of the ways we can assist you while encountering some of those hiccups:
Title insurance is especially useful if the current owner of the home has a lien claim on the property due to substantial debt. Another reason title insurance is so beneficial is that the transaction process can be complex when family members and rightful heirs of the property are not notified. This could result in a complicated series of events and questions regarding who should claim the property, so it’s good to trust a title agency like Southern Title for that extra layer of protection.
Title Search Services
The title agency you work with should offer extensive searches that can provide helpful information about your seller. You won’t be blindsided by this information should they have a history of incomplete documents or negligence. Instead, you’ll be prepared, especially if you entrust Southern Title. We help ensure that your seller has the right to their title before transferring ownership that may have an illegitimate foundation.
Title agencies facilitate sale closings and handle all documentation for both the buyer and the seller. They are responsible for acting as a nonpartial third party to effectively handle monetary transactions and other responsibilities involved in the process. This is extremely helpful in preventing any fraudulent activity.
