Have Finance Questions? Ask a Financial Expert Online.
I'm Lindie, and I’m a moderator for this topic. I sent your requested professional a message to follow up with you here, when they are back online.
If I can help further, please let me know. Thank you for your continued patience.
Thank you for your post. Your original professional here.My apologies on the delay, I had a medical emergency and was offline. While the previous professional is quite adept in financial information, she is not an expert in US real estate. Please therefore allow me to answer in the alternative.To answer directly, such errors happen far too often, I am afraid. These are called 'minor' errors as the error does not fundamentally or substantially change the wording or the subject matter of the deed. What you can do is request that the seller file a motion to modify via their deed insurance so a to remove this possible blemish on the deed, but it is otherwise NOT an issue if the property can still be identified and directly traced to your transaction and your name. As that was their error, the expense of fixing the error is theirs until and if title passes to you. Then the expense and the responsibility likewise transfers to you as well.Hope that helps and please be well. I promise to be more available going forward and have a wonderful start of the week.
