Important Real Estate Terms to Understand

Not only do we want to represent you throughout the real estate process, but we want to provide you with the necessary knowledge and resources to make important decisions. When an individual is interested in buying, selling or renting property, it is important to understand a few key concepts in the matter.

The real estate legal terms include, but are not limited to:

  • Abstract: This is a record that includes all documentation to a piece of property and its title. Within this summary, you can find the price paid for the property, location and its dimensions, the names of individuals linked to the transactions, mortgages, property taxes and other terms involved.
  • Conveyance Office Books (COB): A COB is a book within the court house that is used to keep track of the property transactions that occur.
  • Mortgage Office Books (MOB): A MOB is a book within the court house that keeps track of money judgments, mortgages, etc.
  • Title Insurance: This is a form of insurance that protects you from risks that may occur during a property transaction. Mortgagee's title insurance protects the interests of the lender while Owner's title insurance protects the interests of the owner. The lender or owner has the additional option in Lien Coverage, which protects them when property is being built and additional liens are attached.
