Evidence of Title:
"Evidence of Title" refers to documents or information that prove someone legally owns a piece of property, like a house or land. It's like having a special paper or record that says, "This belongs to me!" Actual or constructive notice means that people can find out about the ownership, either through documents or by looking at the property itself. Some examples of evidence of title are opinion of title, certificate of title, and title insurance.
For example, when you buy a house, you might get a title insurance policy. This policy protects you from any issues that might come up with the property's ownership, and it serves as evidence that you're the legal owner of the house.
