Why Real Estate Titles are so Important

This report from the Noblesville Ledger shows the problems that can come from bad real estate deeds.

Regardless of who owned the land originally, county attorney Mike Howard said the trustee's lawyer had the wrong land description when the township's title was entered, so the commission's title was accepted last summer. He said the commission now has the right to the land, and asked Demaree if he wanted to evict the township.

When Demaree did not answer, Commissioner Steve Holt told Howard to void the township's title.
