Accepting a Deed Instead of Foreclosing on a First (But Not Only) Lien
Accepting a deed in lieu of foreclosure might seem to be an easy way to resolve foreclosure situations without litigation. But perils lurk in situations where there is more than one lien existing on the property, and some of those liens remain after the deed-in-lieu transaction.

Created, Suffered, Assumed, or Agreed To, Once Again
Title insurers sometimes try to get out of paying claims because of actions that policy holders take in attempting to mitigate the loss caused by a title defect that the title insurer didn’t discover or ignored. But when such actions are taken upon the recommendation of the attorney provided by the title insurer to defend the claim, the title insurer probably won’t prevail, as a recent New Jersey case illustrates.
