Title Insurance Defense
We defend mortgage lenders on behalf of a national title insurance company. Often times these representations occur in the context of personal bankruptcies -- the bankruptcy trustee will seek to avoid the mortgage lender's mortgage based on an error in the execution or recording of the mortgage. In one such case, we defended a mortgage that was recorded in the wrong county. We quickly negotiated a settlement with the trustee that prevented the filing of an adversary proceeding and saved on costs. The settlement also permitted the mortgage lender to record its mortgage in the correct county and completely resolved the title defect.
