Title Opinions in Oklahoma City
What is a title?
A title is a document that gives an individual the rights of ownership to property. When someone is selling a piece of real estate, he or she must give the title or an abstract of title to the buyer. An abstract of title consists of copies of public records that explain the division of the land. Once the licensed abstractor has compiled the abstract of title, it must be reviewed by an attorney to ensure that it is marketable in the state of Oklahoma. With over 15 years of combined experience, our attorneys atThe Law Office of Bryon J. Will, P.L.L.C. are well-equipped to evaluate your abstract of title in Oklahoma County.

In order to obtain a commitment or policy of title insurance, all of the documents must be reviewed by a lawyer who will then prepare a title opinion. The attorney must determine that the title is marketable, which means it has a clear legal record and is free from visible imperfections, serious doubts and legal action. The opinion will most likely contain a property description, the owner’s identity, restrictions, liens and other things that affect the title as well as the other requirements, according to the standards in the Title Examination Standards of the Real Property Section of the Oklahoma Bar Association.
