Title Examinations, Opinions & Insurance

Experienced Athens Real Estate Litigation Attorneys

Investing in property can be a wise decision, but it’s important that you first obtain satisfactory evidence regarding the title to the property. Our firm regularly conducts title examinations. We have in-house abstractors and also contract with independent contractors in order to cover a greater geographical area that suits our clients’ varied needs. Our attorneys can certify as to the title to real property, and we are also agents for several national title insurance companies and can issue owners’ and lenders’ title insurance policies.

In Georgia, different laws surround title than in some other states. For instance, in Georgia, husband and wife are not required to join in the execution of a deed. Secondly, a lender takes a security deed rather than a mortgage—this passes title rather than only providing the lender a lien on the property. Title to property owned by a person at his or her death is treated differently in Georgia than some other states. In Georgia, a year’s support, which may include real estate, may be awarded to a surviving spouse and minor children. Where a will exists, title vests in an executor until he/she makes an assent to the devise. There are other peculiarities to titles in Georgia, and there are many laws and considerations that come into play in examining title to real property. Having an experienced attorney on your side can be invaluable throughout the process.
