Clear Title Lawyers in Okaloosa County

Put Chesser & Barr, P.A. on Your Side Today

In the real estate industry, “clear title” is a simple way of stating that a property owner’s title to property is not only valid, but free of defects.

When does a title defect occur?

A “cloud on title,” often referred to as a defected title, can occur for several reasons. If your title is facing encumbrances, for example, it means that there is some interference on the title that needs to be handled before it’s sold. This is especially common in cases where an individual is given rights to a property by someone other than the homeowner.

Issues with a “cloud on title” can include the following:

  • Errors with prior recordings of the title
  • Discrepancies in the way the property is described in documents
  • Errors encumbrances and easements on the property
