Maryland court limits chain of title challenges post-foreclosure

A new opinion from the Maryland Court of Appeals limits the amount of time homeowners have to challenge chain of title defects when dealing with a foreclosure.

The ruling essentially prohibits homeowners from raising title defect issues in court after a foreclosure sale is already complete.

The case in question โ€” Thomas v. Nadel โ€” essentially says chain of title defects cannot be classified as “frauds on the system;” therefore, the homeowner in question is barred from raising concerns about gaps in ownership on the underlying promissory note when a foreclosure sale is already complete.
