What is title? | EquiTrust Title Company | Brian J. Ditthardt | http://www.equitrust-title.com/ | (850) 845-0233 | 42 Business Center Drive, #106, Miramar Beach, Florida 32550Title is basically your right to possession, ownership, and the permitted uses. There are many moving parts of a real estate transaction. It's not like buying a car and getting a title to the car. Many hazards, open mortgages, liens, heir rights, claims. Basically I'd recommend that you get an attorney to examine title to tell you what title you are purchasing.
