Can a title company help with buying and selling a timeshare? The answer is yes. Many people wonder
why they need a title company to close on a property deal. They only see the obvious things they assist
with, like telling you where to sign. The fact is these companies do a lot more than that. Title companies
provide title insurance, research titles, prepare documents, establish and maintain escrow accounts,
work with law firms representing buyers and sellers (or the probate officers handling a seller’s estate),
and ensuring the proper recording and distribution of all documents related to a sale. These ear every
important things to have taken care of when you are buying a property and can be even more beneficial
for a timeshare.
Title companies will research whether a deed has any liens on it from previous owners. This is a very
good idea especially of you are buying a resale timeshare. This is also where title insurance comes in
handy. Title insurance will protect the new buyer of a property from any judgments against a property
from affecting them. These are major considerations when you are spending a large amount of money
on any kind of property.
Although not all title companies handle timeshare transactions, there are firms that specialize in them. If
you are in the market for one, find one of these. Hiring a title company lead you through your purchase
is one idea that will help to make your timeshare purchasing as well thought out as it should be.
