Books or tutorials on resolving title issue

4 Replies

Looking for a good book on resolving title issues and just understanding the transfer of title process all together. Yes I have learned some things already that my sellers might need to clear title so we can get the sale done but the more I know the better it is for everyone before we even start the process.

Do you have a particular title problem in mind? If so, then spell it out and maybe we can make some suggestions. 

Or is it one of those 'well, some day I might come across a title problem and I want to learn about every single scenario that could possible happen' thing? I'd say 'forget it'.  Let the title company figure out what's going on. 

Personally, I like to follow my title back many years, before I make offers, just to know what i"m dealing with. And I've dealt with my share of title problems. Looking back, I don't think any book could have prepared me, because they were all different and I learned a ton.

take a job as a title examiner

I don’t have a problem right now, have had some in the past and learned how to fix the issue, just would like to have more knowledge. I find it beneficial sharing knowledge with sellers on deals I’m working out with them. I agree that most of the things I will learn is by fixing these problems after title points out the issue. Hard to find books on your typical title issues on SFR’s and there solutions.
