Title Disputes

Title to real property can often be contested or in question.  Unlike possession of personal property, you cannot see possession of  real property.  Disputes over legal, or equitable, ownership of real property frequently occur because of mistakes in transfer of property, a lender failing to satisfy a mortgage, or, probably the most common, a "cloud on title" brought about because somebody died and no estate was opened.  Title problems can sometimes be easy to fix (e.g. open an estate) or more complicated.  These problems need to be resolved by someone familiar with real property law.
