What is a Title?
A title is the legal right to the possession of a property. In a title the rights of a property are bundled and may be separated or held by different parties. A title must be in place in order to transfer a property to another owner. Knowing the designations on a title and safely storing the title can save you time and money in future real estate transactions.
Types of rights that may be designated by a title:
- Property Possession
- Property Use & Enclosure
- Access Easement
- Water Rights
- Mineral Rights
- Timber Rights
- Farming Rights
- Hunting Rights
What is Settlement?
Settlement, also known as a closing, consists of the transfer of the property and the signing of the purchase contract. At a settlement, the final legal processes take place in order to transfer the ownership of a property legally.
Transactions at a settlement:
- The buyer gives a check to the title company for the remaining funds of the purchase price
- The seller signs the deed and gives the keys to the buyer
- The seller receives a check for the profits of the sale
- The title company registers the new deed
