Title Insurance when buying from family memberI am buying a family members house, to get him out from under the mortgage so he can close on a new home. We will then put the first house up for sale after cosmetic work is complete to get it "sale ready". I guess you can call it a flip, but its not being done to make money. This way no contingency on new house P/O waiting for old house to sell. I don't see a need for Title insurance. He has owned the house for 11 years and the abstract is being updated for my purchase.November 13 2013 - Rochester00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
