The "title" to real estate means the right of the owner to its peaceful possession and use, free from the claims of others. The exercise of that right is, however, often limited by other rights, such as "easements". Another limitation to an owner's use of his or her property may be restrictions in the deed, local zoning laws, tax laws, other debts or assessments or levies. When you buy a house, you need to know that you have the right to occupy it without interference and that you later will be able to sell or mortgage it without problems.
