Title Examination Process: Role of Title Standards


Understand the role of title standards.

Attorneys have had a longstanding central, professional role in the examination of real estate titles. Historically, the attorney’s role in real estate transactions included the practice of reviewing a sequence of deeds or obtaining from an abstractor an abstract of all documents of record pertaining to the particular real property. The attorney would then render an opinion of the validity of the chain of title and would state who owned the property, and what other outstanding encumbrances affected the property. Where applicable statute and case law did not provide sufficient directives over potential title issues, there was room among counsel for the parties to differ about a wide array of issues that grew out of the examination, though routine, of the title. This white paper reviews measures to resolve such issues and discusses recurring title issues that examiners must deal with.
