Dear Forms Committee: What could a buyer object to in a title report?

Encroachments, liens, access problems, or CC&R limitations are a few examples of items that might be important to the buyer. The buyer is responsible for reviewing all items within the title report and objecting to any items within the timeframe specified in the sale agreement.

Title exceptions can be eliminated if they have been included by mistake or if the title insurance company decides the risk of a claim is small. In response to a buyer’s title objection, a seller may be able to remove a problem that creates an exception.

All comments and responses from OREF or its staff, managers, and volunteers are non-legal opinions made for general purposes. Each Forms subscriber must rely solely upon their Principal broker or personal legal counsel for specific advice and instruction. You and your client should independently confirm that the Form(s) you use are legally suitable for the purposes intended and that they are current with respect to all laws and regulations.
