John Hixson has been handling real estate transactions and disputes for many years. He has dealt with a variety of issues related to the real estate transaction process, including:
Title disputes are among the most common of all real estate disputes. They are disagreements about who owns a piece of property and the amount of area a property covers. Although they are less common now because better records are kept, title issues do crop up and will always require the services of a title disputes lawyer such as John Hixson.
Having title to a property generally means a person not only owns the property described in a deed but they also have owner’s rights which means they have the rights to possession, water rights, mineral rights and easements. Although the title is usually recorded with a county or city recorder’s office when a property is bought or sold, if a property has not changed hands for decades, records may not be so accurate or up-to-date. This can create a variety of disagreements.
If you find that your title rights are being challenged for any reason, it’s essential to hire an experienced title dispute attorney to assist you in defending any attack on your boundary rights or your title to your property.
