If you’re buying a home, you may be thinking about square footage, if your furniture will go with the walls, or if the garage is the right size. Don’t overlook title insurance, though.

Around one-third of property titles have errors. Those errors can leave buyers vulnerable to liens, defects and encumbrances. If the title is deemed “unmarketable,” you could be stuck with property that’s difficult or impossible to sell. Before signing closing documents, a thorough title search and title insurance can protect you from the financial burden of a clouded title. If you have questions about your property purchase, Blethen Berens can help you navigate your options. Contact us today!
