The state's court of equity or the state court which handles such proceedings over clearing property titles under such circumstances.

Contacting the land recorder's or assessor's office in the county in which the property is located will help obtain the information needed.

Ownership of personal property is conveyed by a deed. A bill of sale is merely a transaction written on paper. The person who has ownership is the person listed on a deed or title.

Does the owner of the property have to tell you if there is a utility easement on the property before you buy it if it runs the length of the back of the house and property?

It depends on the transaction. In most normal transactions the standard contract used by most Realtors will say something about clear title, a title commitment from the title company and other factors. If the buyer did not expect a clear title then it could be argued they received what they expected. The buyer should review the details of the title before signing the final documents to complete the sale. Any title insurance policy will show all easements and exceptions to a clear title. Full disclosure is best and expected but the fine details will really be based on the agreement signed by the buyer and the seller.


Can you sale a property with out probateing if all of us are in agrement?

An estate that includes real estate must be probated in order for title to pass to the heirs. Until the estate is duly probated you don't own the property legally and cannot execute a valid deed. An attorney examining the title to the property for a proposed buyer would insist the estate be probated in order to pass clear title.

What does a lien on a home mean?

Lien means right on property to keep possession of it till debt due in respect of it is discharged. Thus a Bank has a lien on your property until the ouitstanding mortgage is paid.A lien is a means of "clouding" the title to your property. For example, there are mechanic's liens, tax liens, judgment liens, etc. If you have a lien on your property, that lien must be satisfied before you can reap the benefit of a sale of that property. In other words, you must "clear" the title (by paying sums due or performing) before you can pass that property through sale, etc. A title company can help you with this.

What happens to the liens on a property if it is lost to foreclosures?

The liens are usually in place when the bank or loan company takes possession of the property.

Monies from sale are first used to clear title before new owner can take legal possession. Regulations can be different depending on type of property and state.

Can property in the state of Texas be sold without a clear title?

Not real property such as a house or acreage. There is a process where a persson can sell a vehicle if the title is missing but not if there is a lien against said vehicle. If the issue involves liens or judgments they generally have to be "satisfied", which usually means paid in full before a sale is allowed.

When a property is purchased from a sheriff sale in Florida does it give the high bidder clear title to the property?

No. A sheriff's deed usually carries a warning that it does not represent that the debtor owned any interest in the property. You should have a comprehensive title examination performed by a professional to determine whether additional liens exist. A sheriff's deed is a good indication that the owner was in serious debt.


The owner of a house granted a power of attorney but died one month before the sale. The attorney in fact went ahead with the closing not disclosing the death. What happens now?

The POA was extinguished the moment the principal died whether or not the attorney in fact disclosed the death. Therefore he/she could not give a valid deed so the grantee did not take title to the property. The property is actually in the decedent's estate at this time.The legal expenses to clear the title will be costly. The decedent's estate must be probated. Future title examinations will reveal that the owner was deceased at the time of the sale. The AIF has committed fraud and theft of the proceeds of the sale. Those are serious criminal charges and you need to bring this situation to the attention of the "purchaser" of the property and the authorities or you may be considered an accomplice.The POA was extinguished the moment the principal died whether or not the attorney in fact disclosed the death.

Does a deed in lieu of foreclosure stop a sheriff sale?

A sheriff's sale indicates that a creditor won a court judgment and acquired the legal right to sell the property to satisfy the judgment. A lender wants the property to be free and clear of other liens before taking title by a deed in lieu of a mortgage foreclosure. An answer would require more details about the debt underlying the sheriff's sale.

Bargain and Sale Deed?

Get StartedA Bargain and Sale Deed is a type of real property (i.e. land or a building like a house or apartment) deed where the grantor or owner of the property transfers (grants) their portion of interest in the property in which the grantor has title. A Bargain and Sale Deed is commonly used when a property is transferred between parties unfamiliar to each other as it provides certain safeguards for the Grantee or buyer. A Bargain and Sale Deed can be drafted to provide a guarantee to the buyer that the seller owns the property free and clear of any debt (unless the debt is disclosed in the deed). This type of deed can also be drafted without such a guarantee in the event the Grantor has disclosed existing indebtedness to the Grantee.**If the Grantor desires to provide a guarantee against problems with the title regardless of when or under whose ownership they occurred, a Warranty Deed is more appropriate. If the Grantor only wishes to guarantee against problems with the title to the property through the time the Grantor owned the property a Special Warranty Deed is needed. If the Grantor does not desire to provide any guarantees regarding title or the seller's authority to sell the property free and clear of debt, then a Quit Claim Deed is best.
