Hear remedies for a frequent real estate title situation: we typically assume that the “freebie” property profile does confirm title, but that may not always be so. Planning an estate is the ideal time to be make sure that all is as you assume it is or are told it is ~ and also the best time to identify any necessary corrections needed in the chain of title. The business of title insurance companies is to assemble information about properties in the happy expectation that it will be complete and accurate, so that when they issue the title insurance policy, the potential for a claim is microscopic.

As fiduciaries, we regularly have real estate come into our hands. Our typical assumption is that the title is what we can confirm by a “freebie” property profile, and commonly that is correct, but not necessarily. The time that you are administering or planning an estate is an ideal time to be confident that all is as you assume it is and to take care of needed corrections if necessary.
