if I had to purchase old permits from the previous owner which I did today, is the title insurance responsible

Asked by Gail, Illinois Tue May 6, 2008

Everything that I had to purchase permits for were on my survey 10 years ago and I had to purchase them because the previous owner did not. They told me this when I went for a permit for a fence now it's my responsibility. This is so unfair This should be something that a closing attorney should look for but nobody does and many innocent people have to pay for someone else's neglect...........like me.

why was the seller supposed to buy them 10 years ago?
