|I mentioned checking the legal description. It seems the "title expert" wrote the legal description ... Lord knows what was used to draft it. It was included typed into the very small 3 inch space in the mortgage deed. Not much to read: right street address, right town, wrong county, right state, wrong zip code. Shortest legal description I have ever seen for that amount of money in over 20 years of title searching. |
I was recently at a real property lawyers' dinner, which included lawyers for in-state title insurance offices, and mentioned this one. They got a good laugh out of it!! Seems in-state offices of national title insurance companies are getting miffed at out-of-state branches cutting out the local in-state office. Local offices are waiting for an opportunity to gloat when out-of-state branch has to correct errors (without getting paid because they made the error) or gets a claim.
