In the state of Vermont, the primary function of a buyer's attorney is to ensure the seller has clear marketable title to the property. This is done by conducting a title search of the available and appropriate public records. At the Law Offices of Marc E. Wiener, we have over three decades of experience reporting title search results in the form of a title opinion to home buyers that describe any rights of way, covenants, easements, or any other issues that might affect the property. At the closing, we also review all of the loan documents, so that our clients fully understand the documents they have executed.
A title search, however, is not a guarantee of clear title, or that some new issue may not arise in the future. We strongly recommend all that buyers purchase a title insurance policy.
