A thorough, effective title search when purchasing a home is key to preventing title problems and assuring full value when it comes time to sell your home.
If you are on the verge of making an offer on a house and feel uncomfortable with putting down the money that your real estate broker is suggesting, it is important to talk with an experienced Massachusetts title attorney for reputable legal advice.

Title examination can reveal problems with the property you are buying and can allow for the resolution of problems that may exist. You do not want to purchase a home that carries serious title problems because title insurance will not issue on it, and you will not be able to sell for full value. Title issues can range from unreleased mortgages and missing interests on property to bad descriptions and boundary disputes. We have the skill and the knowledge needed to determine good and bad title. Once title issues are discovered, it is clear whether or not the transaction should go forward.
In Massachusetts, a quitclaim deed is given to clear a title when the grantor's interest in a property is open to question. By accepting a quit claim deed, the buyer accepts all risks associated with the title. We help minimize those risks, offer sound, principled legal counsel about whether or not to proceed with a purchase, and protect the equity in your home.
