Title deficiency that prevents a seller from successfully transferring property to a buyer. A title company may discover a title defect ( due to encumbrances against the property or failure of a former co-owner of the property to sign a deed transferring the title, etc.) in preparation for a closing, effectively blocking the sale of the property until the defect is resolved.
