My ex is actually working with me, at the time we were married and he was just on the deed, so when we were closing someone forgot to ask him to sign something.
When I purchased the home it was a HUD home (foreclosure), no one is 'claiming' the property, and it does seem the foreclosure paperwork was 'filed' on the books the same time as the sale, which is apparently incorrect procedure.
Regarding the quit claim, its $200 I don't need to spend. Ex and I are on good terms and he lost his rights to the house in the divorce (per the decree), but we have a child and I wanted him to have say on the house should something happen to me. So I'm good in that respect, luckily.
The issues were discovered during the sale of my home... up until this point (now 3+ years after my original purchase) we had no clue there were any title issues. So we were about a week from the sale closing (the new sale) and the closing attorney noticed these issues. The original title company did provide the letter of indemnification to my policy limit, but the closing attorney wanted the insurance company to cover the different between the new buyer's price and my original price... which I feel they should be required to pay, but at the same time I'm not sure why... its a weird situation. Their screwup has cost me the sale of my house right now...
