COA: Buyers had notice property was under lease | The Indiana Lawyer

contract-1332817_1920Another valuable reminder: it is always prudent to conduct some form of due diligence when considering the purchase of any real estate, regardless of the type of interest being sold.

At a minimum, this should include a title search – a search of the public records – which reflects various recorded interests that affect the land. A title company can be hired to conduct this examination, the results of which are usually presented in a tract search report or a commitment for title insurance.

The fee is almost always negligible compared to the risks for misunderstanding, misrepresentation and outright fraud …not to mention the cost and angst associated with litigation.
