Title Insurance Defense

Represented a national insurance company in defense of a claim that property was not properly vested in the insured’s name. We reviewed the chain of title and discovered numerous title defects. We then filed a quiet title action, which was resolved pursuant to an agreed order. The title issues were resolved with the recording of four quit claim deeds, the agreed order, and an affidavit of facts from the insured. We resolved this matter within a few months of filing the complaint. The insured now has good title to his property, and the insurance company did not pay out on the claim other than legal fees.
