What is a Title Commitment?
The title commitment is the title insurance company’s “promise” to issue an owner’s title policy for the property on the same terms, conditions and with the same exceptions as shown on the title commitment.
Can I refuse to purchase if there are title issues and still get my deposit back?
Yes, but the Seller has a right to cure and you have to timely object to title defects within the contractually specified time after your receipt of the Title Commitment (usually 5 days).
When should a Buyer be represented by an attorney?
We believe it is always advisable to be represented by an attorney when purchasing real property, but it is especially important in circumstances involving cash purchases, vacant land purchases and commercial purchases.
