Correll is president of Stewart Title of Palm Beach County and a director of the Palm Beach County Title Association. For the Philip Meisners it's having your own garden. Title Insurance Protects Owners ml i V "S Philip Meisner's "green thumb" began to Itch the first time he saw Covered Bridge while his wife Lydia had visions of her own tropical garden. After a year in residence, the Meisners are satisfied that the Priceless Lifestyle at Covered Bridge allows them to indulge their love of gardening and to experiment with the many plants and flowers indigenous to South Florida. They are also proud to live where the happy people live, a beautifully landscaped condominium with miles of bike paths, two pools, a million dollar lakefront clubhouse, tennis courts, organized social activities and a host of friendly people. Covered Bridge, where the happy people live, offers a truly Priceless Lifestyle from ... owner will be assured of a clear title. His insurance policy will protect him against loss, including the cost of any title defense during his ownership and thereafter for a period of 25 years, if he conveys his property under a warranty deed. When at time of closing you are presented with a policy, you are holding a valuable document which involved the professional assistance of title searchers, closers and a good number of busy heads in the back of a title plant. Title insurance is a one-cost premium and does not have to be renewed like other insurance policies. In fact 95 per cent of the premium is used to defray the cost of keeping title records and paying employes. In purchasing insurance you should look for a company that stands behind its promise, gives you 100 per cent service, skilled professionals preparing your title and, should a claim arise, fend for you and indemnify you from any damage. Look for an established and reliable company. The title business is not as lucrative as many individuals believe. It is well known that several large conglomerates who have picked up title companies in their search for hugeness have lost millions of dollars. Beware of title companies offering policies for very small prices, as in any other business, you get what you pay for. Your property is too valuable an investment. By GERALD L. CORRELL The guaranteed right of an American to own land is a cherished freedom. And the transfer of real estate is one of America's largest businesses, as well as one of great complexity. To most of us, buying a home is still a major investment. Who would not like it to be a safe one. We use the assistance of real estate brokers, bankers and lawyers and want to be sure that we own the property we purchase. Defects in title are common. Abstracts used to be popular. An abstract is a concise copy of the important information contained in every instrument of record affecting the title to a specific piece of property. But with time a few pages can grow to a bulky and heavy accumulation of paper which needs to be examined by an attorney. In 1868 in Pennsylvania, when the Supreme Court made the decision that an attorney was not responsible for a mistake of judgment in examining an abstract, real estate owners were looking for better protection. In a real estate transaction an error could be a financial catastrophe. In 1876, the first title opinion was issued and the title insurance idea caught on fast. With title insurance not only will you be granted a title search, which involves a search of public records for deeds, mortgages, court judgments and other documents affecting ownership of land, but the new Directions.

Box 1414, Lake Worth, Fla. 33460 P in the Palm Beaches Here's How To Start With a Clean Slate 'the CONDOMINIUMS By NORMAN II. STARK The blackboard, to me, is a symbol of learning. It can be found in any schoolroom, many industry conference rooms and homes with children. But when a lesson has been taught, it needs to be erased for the next use. Here's a formula for doing that when the chalk builds up. You'll need two cups vinegar, one cup of powdered detergent and one gallon water. Mix the detergent and vinegar into the water. To use, wash the blackboard with a sponge or cloth dipped into the solution and rinse with clear water. Then you'll have a "clean slate" for the next lesson. Besides the satisfaction you get by making your own products for personal or home care, most formulas are real money-savers that enable the prices of store- you to beat bought items. m 1 ; L Ji Like any chemical product you use at home, you should store this one safely, label it listing ingredients and noting any cautions and keep it out of reach of children. .... . ,5TF4!.V1 A' 2ZL-J 17.. vjnj": r LJ I- n ? o o i i iwimtiii tOdm From!
