Title Issues

Jul. 01, 2015

Back to Project:

I mentioned eariler that the property change had been stalled by title issues.  It has been several months so I decided to see if I could see what the issue might be. So, a trip to the County Recorder and the County Assessor earlier this week clarifed things.  The theatre chain that owned that owned the building prior to selling it to the current owner changed its corporate name several times during it's ownership period.  These name changes were not properly recorded according to the assessor's office.  So the chain of ownership is confusing, hence the title issues.  I asked how this issue is typically resolved, and was told it is typically done by an afidavit....
