Naked Title

By on August 14, 2018

A naked title refers to a legal title to a property with none of the usual rights and privileges associated with ownership.

Also referred to as a bare legal title, these types of title are usually held by trustees.

It must be noted however that even though a trustee will have control over the property, the law recognizes that the rights to the properly rightfully belong to it’s beneficiaries.

As opposed to a naked title, beneficiaries will have equitable title.

Naked titles can also arise in hypothecation mortgages.

In this case, a third party will hold a naked title until the mortgage is paid off.
