No, when the title is changed it is subject to whatever rightful lien that is attached to the property. That is what title insurance is for and it will ensure full title to the new ownership and if not then the loss would be covered by the title company. It is also subject to leases such as a landlord-tenant. What previous contract are you speaking about?
