Equitable Title

By on July 29, 2018

The term equitable title can be used in real estate to describe two types of situations.

Firstly, it describes the interest held by a property buyer who has agreed to purchase the property, but the transaction has yet to officially close.

In a situation where gold is found below the ground of a property in the interim period, since the buyer has equitable title, the gold will rightfully belong to him.

Secondly, it can also be used to describe the title of a property held by a trust beneficiary.

In this case, the trustee would hold a naked title.
