Canton Title Company

July 10th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I recently received an unexpected check from Canton Title Company. I had done a settlement with them back in 2004. Their records showed that I was due an amount back for recording fees.

They were reviewing old files and sent me a letter saying: 

“Upon this review, Canton Title Company has come across your file and is please to advise that the review of your file reflects that you are due the amount reflected on the attached check”

The check enclosed was for $145.19. I watch title companies when I am due additional funds from settlement for things like water bill escrows. In this case I had no idea any money was due and considered the settlement closed.

Considering that the settlement was three plus years ago, any money due was long since forgotten. It is to Canton Title’s credit that they took the time to send me a check.

Kudos to Canton Title. Thanks guys, that will buy me a nice sushi dinner.

Happy investing,

    Do you still use Canton Title?
    I am new to investing.
    I would like a title company who is familiar with Subject to and Land Trusts

    I only used Canton Title one time. Some title companies that are popular with investors are Stonegate title, Cohen and Foreman or Larry London of Clear title.
