Real Estate Legal Questions and Answers

Real Estate

Mortgage Agreement

Georgia

Asked on Jun 28, 2022

Which court document shows the mortgagee?

Just asking

Howard B.

Answered Aug 9, 2022

To be clear, the mortgagor is the person taking the loan and giving the creditor a security interest in real property. The mortgagee is the creditor, typically a bank. Which court document depends on what type of proceeding you are involved in. If you are asking about a foreclosure action, the mortgage instrument is typically filed with the petition/complaint initiating the action. However, I'm an Oklahoma attorney, not a Georgia attorney, so I don't know if the same requirement applies to filings in your state. However, that's what is typical. The problem is that the loan is often sold, so the promissory note and the mortgage are assigned to other companies. The manner in which that happens varies by state. There might be attachments showing the documents were assigned to other financial institutions who presumably bought the note and mortgage. Those are usually pages attached to the back of the mortgage agreement. Also, there is a company called the Mortgage Electronic Registration, Inc. ("MERS") that tracks ownership of loans without making a separate assignment each time a loan is transferred from one financial institution to another. In a MERS case, there is typically a statement from MERS, often in a long legalese document called an affidavit. Somewhere in that affidavit, it likely says who the present owner is. Alternatively, the affidavit simply verifies that some other document is a true copy of their business records, and THAT document will have the mortgagee information. For more detailed information, you will need to take whatever documents you have and whatever case information you have (especially the case number) to an attorney in the state where the property is located, preferably in the county where the property is located. Good luck!

Purchase And Sale Agreement

Georgia

Asked on Sep 9, 2023

Purchase and sale agreement and boundaries?

I am in the process of purchasing a house and the purchase and sale agreement includes the boundaries of the property. I am concerned that the boundaries listed in the agreement do not match the boundaries of the property as shown in the survey, and I would like to know what my legal options are.

Bobby H.

Answered Oct 20, 2023

Your options should be set forth in your purchase and sale agreement. Most agreements provide for amendment and/or cancellation if issues are discovered and not corrected during the due diligence period or short period of time thereafter PROVIDED the seller has been placed on notice in accordance with the terms of the agreement. Regardless whether the sales agreement is amended, verifying and ensuring that the legal descriptions in the final closing documents contain a references to the survey should suffice.

Agreement To Sell Real Estate

Georgia

Asked on Mar 28, 2022

buying a vacant city lot with a quitclaim deed?

hello, i am looking to purchase a vacant city lot in savannah, georgia. it was taken by the city for taxes in 1968 and sold to the current buyers in 1986. seller will only give a quitclaim deed. once i purchase the lot what is the process and cost to get title insurance? regards paul

Meghan T.

Answered Mar 29, 2022

Paul, Please, please, please purchase the title insurance before purchasing the lot (if possible). This will protect you in the event of any title defects. It is normal for the owner of a lot to prefer to transfer the property via quitclaim deed, especially if the property was obtained via a tax sale. However, it may be extremely helpful to determine, in advance, if there are any title defects which need to be addressed. Are you under contract to sell the property? Please reach out to me if you have any questions. Thanks, Meghan K Thomas

Real Estate Contract

Georgia

Asked on Mar 24, 2022

How many years does a quick claim become effective?s

Number of years for quick claim to be effect ive

Meghan T.

Answered Mar 29, 2022

A quit claim deed is effective upon execution so long as the deed is dated as of the date of signature. Execution means that the deed is signed, in front of a witness and a notary. The witness and notary must also sign the deed. Finally, the deed must be recorded. This means that the deed must be submitted to the Superior Court recording office of the County in which the property sits. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Meghan K Thomas

Property Deed

Georgia

Asked on Feb 18, 2022

What happens when a mortgaged house was built on the wrong land?

We have 4 total lots, two in my fathers name and the other two in my grandfather’s name. The builder built my fathers house on my grandfather’s land. I wasn’t aware of this years ago until My father passed away. Who or How do we fix this problem?

Meghan T.

Answered Mar 11, 2022

Hello. There are multiple solutions to this problem. The simplest solution would be for your grandfather (or whoever the current owner is) to deed the property over to your father's heirs. They could also switch parcels of land. Depending on how long ago the home was built, the owner of the house could potentially have a right to the property via an adverse possession. Feel free to contact me to discuss this matter in more detail. - Meghan Thomas, Esq.
