5633 - Loflin v. BMP Development

In this property dispute, Appellants William and Leslie Loflin challenge the circuit court's order granting summary judgment to Respondent Chicago Title Insurance Company (Chicago Title) on Appellants' breach of contract claim against Chicago Title. Appellants argue the circuit court erred by (1) concluding that the coverage of the title insurance policy issued by Chicago Title (the Policy) was limited to defects of record; (2) finding there were no defects in Appellants' title when the Policy was issued; and (3) concluding that their breach of contract claim against Chicago Title was barred by the statute of limitations. We reverse and remand for a trial on the merits.
