Title Insurance Issues

Title Insurance is involved in virtually every real estate transaction in Wisconsin.  Typically, the seller is obligated to provide an owner's policy of title insurance to the buyer, insuring that the buyer has received clear title to the property. If bank financing is involved, the lender will require the buyer to purchase a policy of title insurance to insure the lender's mortgage as a valid, enforceable lien against the property.  Title disputes are infrequent, but can arise for a range of reasons, and we are familiar with many.
