In a recent opinion, one of the highest courts in the country held that "when a layman purchases real estate lie is prone lo think of his purchase in terms of location cf the premises, its natural advanta<>es and the beauty or iiscfu]ness'"of the buildings nnd improvements thereon, when, as a matter of law it is not the real estate itself but rather title thereto which he has pin-chased, and If he loses his title he loses all." ' ' The mirst dangerous and costly Utle defects often are hidden and undisclosed. Unknown heirs, forced conveyances, secret marriages, deeds by minors or insane persons, lost or undiscovered wills, void o-uit decrees, and many other similar I file defects never show up in an abstract., and consequently the examining attorney never has an opportunity to pass on them Federal Housing Administraticn officials urge extreme care be exercised by prospective home owners to avoid legal entanglements over nsecurc property titles.

Many new houses now feature patios terraces, gardens, sun decks, and complete outdoor living ro:ms, surrounded by lawns and shrubbery. The present practice of buildin" garages as integral parts of the houses lias aided the trend to outdoor living. The larger unbn:keh spaces in the rear allow for landscaped gardens. Inwns, nnd yards Outdoor living is stimulated by Federal Housing Administration regulations which limit the portion of the lot that may be covered by the home structure. The purpose is to insure ample open areas to afford privacy, light, and nir and to permit use of the p>:t for recreational and entertaining activities. Floors of new outdoor living rooms arc usually of brick, tile, or concrete. A portion of the open space Ls roofed. Tlie rear wall of the home may have exlerior decoration in the way of shelves cupboards for wood storage, and built- in seats. Home owners whose homes would lend themselves well to the addition of patirs or terraces may obtain fqnds for the construction of such additions .Irom private lending institutions approved by the Federal Housing Administration under its ModernizatUn Credit plan.
