Affidavit of Title - Individual


More Info
									This affidavit of title is used when an individual owns real property and wants to sell the
property. It states that the seller is the sole owner of the property and has the right to
transfer it. Most states require an affidavit of title which specifies that the seller owns
the property. The affidavit provides added protection for the buyer that the property is
free and clear of any major legal problems involving claims of ownership by other
parties. This document is usually required by a title company issuing title insurance at
the closing of the sale.
