Chapter 45


Licensee; failure to deliver abstract of title.

If a licensee in connection with a residential mortgage loan has possession of an abstract of title and fails to deliver the abstract to the borrower within twenty business days of the borrower's request made by certified mail, return receipt requested, in connection with a proposed sale of the real property, the borrower may authorize the preparation of a new abstract of title to the real property and the person failing to deliver the original abstract shall pay the borrower the reasonable costs of the preparation of the new abstract of title. If a borrower brings an action against the person failing to deliver an abstract of title to recover the payment made, the borrower shall also be entitled to recover reasonable attorney's fees and court costs incurred in the action.
