And even if the title comes back clean, it doesnt mean something isnt reported yet. &nbsp;With no title insurance, you are not protected.&nbsp;<br/><br/>And if you go to the court house, the sale for that one could be cancelled a week before, a day before or even the day of. &nbsp;I have even seen in very rare cases, the sale is reversed and given back to the owner (again, very rare). &nbsp;<br/><br/>Over all, it is a very risky proposition and something you should fully be aware of the negative not just the positive sides of it.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Good luck,&nbsp; Sat, 25 Jan 2014 00:08:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buying-a-home-at-the-Jackson-County-Court-House/516185/ 2014-01-25T00:08:00Z
