If it is a HUD home it is a foreclosure and all the junior liens are null and void. No need to check.

Sounds like you need a new agent......Professionalism is a fleeting trait unfortunately.

Best to check with a local title company or real estate attorney who can do a title search for you. These typically cost around $80 to $100 depending on area and title company.

The only folks who can advise you would be the title company.

Lisa, Your preliminary Title Report discloses all liens against the property. You should have received a copy of it. If not, you need to ask for it and have Title explain that "Exception" to you.
If you Real Estate agent is representing you there is no reason for a "round." Also, the Title company has to disclose any issues that effect title.

Hi Lisa,

How do you know there is a lien on it? Typically, you would learn that information from the title company as part of their due diligence and in which case, they are probably working on getting it cleared for closing. There are situations that require extraordinary measures so if you are getting the run around its probably only because they don't have a clear solution to the problem yet. I agree with Mark...better to have them working for you....they only get paid with the deal closes so your objectives are aligned. Patience is a virtue with foreclosure homes.

You choose the title company? That's pretty hard to believe on a HUD home. Sorry, I know it can be frustrating, but the banks, Fannie, Freddie, and HUD chose title companies that handle hundred of files at once. Don't follow the previous advice. The worst thing you can do is to piss off the person handling your file. That will insure your problem moves to the back of the line. Surely your agent told you of the problems that can occur on these kind of purchases. Hang in there.

If you are having problem or any concern with the title company, your better way to go is to hire an attorney!!!

In regarding the real estate agent, go to the real estate company and ask to talk to the broker to the company, if it does not work, file an complain in the DBPR website: https://www.myfloridalicense.com/entercomplaint.asp?SID=

Good luck

The title company can do this for you...if you are not getting any help from who you are dealing with there ask to speak to a Manager.
