Why is the chain of title a prerequisite for ownership?
The chain of title refers to a way of verifying who the true owner of a piece of real estate is. A deed doesn’t mean that someone owns the land; it’s all about the chain of title. There could have been a break in the chain that leaves the deed null and void; there could be conflicting interests within a chain of title that could leave an assumed owner left without the land they thought was theirs. This video reviews unbroken and broken chains of title and the Marketable Record Title Acts.
