• The transfer of real estate is our nation’s largest single business. The cost of the real estate a person owns, plans to sell, or plans to buy is probably one of the biggest single financial transactions a person will ever make.

  • We have all heard about the title search, but what does it really mean? A title search involves checking numerous sources to ensure every real estate sale is done properly with full disclosure to all involved about every detail that can affect the transaction.

    HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF POTENTIAL PROBLEMS, SOME OF WHICH MAY NOT BE DISCLOSED IN THE PUBLIC RECORDS:

    Lack of authority to act
    Deeds by persons of unsound mind
    Unrecorded mechanics and materialmen’s liens
    Errors in recording and indexing
    Claims by undisclosed or missing heirs
    Forgery
    Instruments executed under invalid power of attorney
    Homestead rights
    Liens for unpaid estate, inheritance, income, or gift taxes
    Fraud
    Misinterpretation of wills
    Marital rights
    And much more


  • Even with a thorough title search, title insurance is also necessary. Title insurance guarantees or “indemnifies” the owners of real estate or others interested against loss or damage from defects in the title to the property. Purchasers need an Owner’s Policy of Title insurance for personal protection. If a lender is involved in the transaction, a Lender’s Policy of Title insurance will be required as well. Working with Landmark Title, Inc., you can guarantee the title insurance policy you receive will be from a highly reputable National Title Underwriter.


  • Landmark Title, Inc. is one of few title companies that offers an in-house title curative department. Marcia Shelton, our curative specialist, brings over 30 years of industry experience to her craft.
