The lawyer who did the title search was paid for a owners' (and also lender's) title policy which he apparently did not purchase. I have a copy of the original bill, a carbon of the certified check made out to the firm, and never received any bills after that time.
Should he now have to provide the policy? Should he also have to pay the legal fees that we have had to pay a new lawyer to try to get the original policy? Should he be responsible for paying to solve a title problem that could have been turned in to the title company had the policy been in effect?
