If by title you mean the deed, you do not have to have it in your possession. It gets recorded in the public record, which in Albany County is located in the County Clerk's office, so that everybody can know who owns any given property. A buyer will have a title search done which will show who the owner is.

Are you referring to the deed; if so send me a email with your dad's name; I will attempt to send it to you.

Is the issue that your father lost his copy of the title? There should be a copy of the title recorded at the town clerk's office from when he purchased the house. Contact the town and they can provide you with a copy.
