Once you purchase a Lake Oswego home, you most likely file away the closing papers and may not look at them again, at least not for a while.  However, last year while selling a second home to a past client, I came across the title to their existing home, which I had previously sold them, and saw the names were incorrect on their deed. They were keeping that first home but I felt the deed should be corrected. The county had incorrectly typed their names when the deed was recorded and at the time title was transferred.

Lake Oswego Real Estate Is Your Name Correct On Your Deed

Thankfully, it was an easy fix to make sure the legal documents were in the correct name of the homeowners. Recently, I saw where another local real estate agent had encountered the same thing on one of the properties owned by one of their sellers.

Lake Oswego Title Discrepancies

In addition, I’ve been updating my database and I see where counties have no names of the owners on some of the properties I have been checking on.  In fact, I’ve had to order a title search to determine who in fact owned the property I was inquiring about.

Does The Title/Deed To Your Home Have Your Correct Name?

Have you checked the legal title to your property lately? When was the last time you checked your deed at the county? Does the county have the correct names, forwarding address if any, and how you want to retain ownership?

Life Changes

There always seem to be short sales, foreclosures, marriages, divorces, loans paid off, etc.  The legal documents to your home are important and should be correct.  Need help with finding out if the title to your Lake Oswego home is correct?  I can help you get it straightened out easily, just give me a call 503-804-9685.
