Best Answer

If the attorney was hired to give you a LEGAL opinion of title but was not the title examiner/reader for the issuing title agency, then it becomes a legal matter which would fall under malpractice.

If the attorney is covered by the Closing Protection Letter and/or either owned the title agency or is employed by the title agency, his/her acts may be covered by the Owner's Policy. A claim with the title underwriter for negligence of title examination or opinion on title cannot be filed if the attorney was a third party, not acting in behalf of the title agency/underwriter. The qualifier to the question is as to whether the attorney was also acting on behalf of the agency/underwriter. In many states, the attorney cannot be representing your interests as well at the agency's.

Can you buy property if it has a lien on it?

The creditor must be paid at the time of the closing. Therefore, when you take title, the property will no longer be subject to the lien. Clearing liens is the responsibility of the closing attorney. It is the reason a prudent attorney (and a prudent buyer) makes certain a comprehensive title examination is performed prior to the closing.
