query: can I sue the title company for using the wrong lot number

Well, I guess you can sue anybody for any reason if you so desire. Will you win? That's another matter. Have your attorney carefully review your owner policy. If you have suffered a loss due to the error, you may have a basis for a title insurance claim.

When a typographical error is discovered, such as an incorrect lot number, the title agent or title company would normally prepare and file corrective instruments at no charge to you.

If you are getting the run around from a title insurance provider, go up the chain. Use certified mail and send a letter to the title company you see named on the title policy jacket. If an address is provided, use that address. Copy your state insurance regulator.
