Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
DearCustomer- Anytime you suspect a forgery of a document there is cause for concern. I would contact the title insurance company in writing and question the validity of the policy. I would request something in writing from the insurance company which validates your policy. You can also contact your local bar association and file a complaint.
Attorneys are not supposed to allow others to sign their names to anything. It is better that you address this problem now rather than wait until you have to enforce the policy and someone tells you its null and void due to a bad signature.
