Protect Your Home!

The TITLE of a home is the form of ownership and determines signature authority, legal, future rights and tax implications.  For this reason, it is wise to understand your options when buying or owning a home as to the best form of ownership to use when recording your home.  To assist with this, click here, "Common Ways to Hold Title" for a 2 page article created by Old Republic Title.  If after reading this, you have have questions, it is advised you speak with your attorney and/or tax consultant for the best solution for you.  When you are satisfied you have reached the best solution for you, then let your real estate agent know so the title company can properly prepare your papers for closing and recording.  If you have already closed, you are still able to modify the title ownership and should consult with your attorney to make the necessary changes and have them recorded in the county where the home is located.
