TOMS RIVER, N.J., Sept. 27, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Counsellors Title Agency, Inc. principal Ralph Aponte sees title insurance providing a stabilizing force within the New Jersey real estate industry through its function of insuring property title. Consequently, with greater scrutiny being given to each and every aspect of the real estate transaction, increased attention is coming upon the role of title agent in New Jersey and the fiscal position of the insurance carrier.
Counsellors Title Agency is seeing measurable growth and demand for its title insurance services, which it has provided to hundreds of real estate attorneys, loan officers and real estate professionals throughout the state of New Jersey since 1996.
According to some information, up to half of all real estate transactions have a problem somewhere in the chain of title. Many of these title issues are easily corrected before closing, but there remains a significant number of cases when there is a defective title.
“It’s in times like these, when national and state economies seek stability, we discover the bedrock of our communities to be our homes and the land that they are built upon. Title insurance guarantees the peace of mind and fiscal continuity necessary for the financial viability of any region or state,” stated Ralph Aponte, president and founder of Counsellors Title Agency in Toms River, New Jersey.
The protocol that Counsellors Title follows to produce title takes into account many of areas that are assiduously reviewed before title is produced.
Some of the causes for a defective title include tax liens, foreclosure issues, asset recovery disputes, fraud, divorce, and leasehold disputes, to mention a few. In cases such as these, the knowledge and skill of the title agent can mean the difference between keeping a home or losing it.
In addition to purchasing title insurance from a strong institution, the value of having qualified legal counsel who is familiar with real estate law is critical to the security and integrity of the transaction.
