Jan was a wonderful agent. We are 2 1/2 hours away from Vincennes and had to sell my mother's house. She took care of us, with caring and compassionate work. Some repairs had to be made for the buyer and she found the laborers to accomplish this in record time. I can't thank her enough for being our realtor!
Before offering to issue a title insurance policy, a title company will do a title search to learn whether there are any problems or limitations with the title. This search is done in an effort to minimize the risks of offering insurance. By minimizing the risks of claims being made, a title insurance company is able to offer its insurance policies for a relatively low, one-time fee. Problems such as deeds, wills, and/or trusts that contain improper vesting and incorrect names, outstanding mortgages, judgments, and tax liens, easements, or incorrect notary acknowledgments are generally found through the title search and usually can be cleared up before the closing on the property.
