The Full Credit Bid Rule and Claims Against a Third Party
In some states, if a lender submits a bid for the full amount of its mortgage at a foreclosure sale, it is prohibited from later seeking a deficiency judgment against the defaulted borrower—the lender is effectively prohibited from claiming that the property is worth less than its bid. But does the bid prevent the lender from claiming that the property is worth less than its bid in a lawsuit against its title insurer?

How a Plaintiff Gets Nothing When Even the Defendant Concedes Owing Something
It’s possible to win absolutely nothing in a lawsuit, even though both sides agree that the defendant owes the plaintiff something. A title insurance policyholder just found that out, in a case where both sides agree that a title defect covered under the policy caused the policyholder’s property to lose value.
The Short Quarter

Much of the land in the United States was surveyed and divided up into one square mile sections, which were often divided up into 160 acre quarter sections or 40 acre quarter-quarter sections. This system was supposed to make legal descriptions of land simple and foolproof for mathematically-challenged farmers, but it doesn’t always work out that way.

A Free House for Suffolk County
Courts don’t often rescind sales contracts for real property. But it is borderline shocking to see a court rescind a sale AFTER the purchasing party has built a full-blown house on the property. Yet that is exactly what the court did in a recent case on Long Island in New York.
A Generous Measure of Damages
In a case where a property owner builds onto his neighbor’s property, courts often have flexibility in the remedy they apply, and often a defendant will find him or herself paying a generous measure of damages to the plaintiff if the encroachment is willful or malicious, as a recent California case illustrates.
All Bets Are Off
Title insurers sometimes end up shooting themselves in the foot by being too aggressive in taking defensive action that benefit themselves rather than their policyholder when a claim arises—as happened in a recent Missouri case.
