Selling Your House With A Faulty Deed
Sadly, you might not discover you have a faulty deed until a title company is working on closing documents. That would mean you have a buyer, and both you and the buyer agree on the price and terms of the sale as well as a closing date.
What is a faulty deed? Why is it a problem? A deed, usually called a Warranty Deed, establishes legal ownership of a parcel of real estate. It is recorded in the county records so that anyone who researches the property can determine the legal owner. Sometimes a deed is not drafted properly. It could be the result of an incorrect legal description, the wrong date, typographical errors, or it may not have been signed by the right people.
Problems with a deed may not be discovered until a sale is pending, because lawyers or legal assistants examine deeds carefully to make sure there are no errors or outstanding issues in the property ownership history. County recorders do not check documents for accuracy before filing them, so you cannot rely on a file-stamped copy of a deed either.
