Most homeowners who are located in different states such as Texas would want to see the absolute title’s official copies when buying a property. However, if any defect in the title is found, the registrar may not grant the absolute title. This would only be disregarded as long as the defect will not cause any issue from the ownership under the title.

Qualified title may be given to the owner if a transaction was found within the title upon its first registration. If in case a breach of trust was made within the title, the owner would still take ownership to the interests of the beneficiaries who are under the trust.
Possessory title is usually given when there are no title deeds to prove ownership or if the deeds have been destroyed. The registrar grants to applicant who is in the position of the property or is in receipt of profit coming from rents and there is no other class title that can be granted.

They may, however, put it into consideration if the homeowner can provide indemnity insurance, which will be taken out once the loan has been completed.
