Have Real Estate Law Questions? Ask a Real Estate Lawyer.
Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.Do you know if the title company had a lien on the property? Were they owed fees?
I don't see any lien from the title company from doing an online search of county records. I have not done a full blown (at the courthouse) title search.
I'm not sure how I would know whether any fees were owed if there is no lien?
THank you. One more question. Based on your response, why don't all or most foreclosures have a title company as a plaintiff in addition to the bank?
The title insurance company in this case is CHICAGO TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY SUCCESSOR BY MERGER TO TICOR TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY. Bank is Huntington.
