It looks like the title company's snafu is going to be for the best. He spent a while explaining how the whole title commitment thing worked and he stressed that we should make sure that gets fixed (in writing) before going to another title company and getting it insured through someone else.
If they hadn't screwed up, we would have probably taken their word for it that they'd fix it and we could quite easily end up beyond the statute of limitations for doing anything about it. As it stands now though, I get to read through a couple of hundred pages of legal documents (covering the last 3 closings for the duplexes).
Have I mentioned how exciting and action-packed my life is lately? I didn't think so.
The prospect of spending my day/evening/night reading that makes me really appreciate that I'm an engineer and not a lawyer ;)
