After-acquired title - After-acquired title

After-acquired titleSearch site for related content
Real property rights, which are acquired by the seller of the property after title to the property has been conveyed. Example: A defect in the chain of title may impair the title held by the apparent owner of a parcel. Subsequent to that owner’s conveyance by deed to another, a corrective instrument may be recorded which cures the defect, thereby conveying after acquired title to the former owner (and to the present owner, unless title was acquired by quit claim deed). NOTE: A Quit Claim Deedi does not convey after-acquired title, but a Warranty Deedi, Special Warranty Deedi or Bargain and Sale Deed does.
