If you are worried about surprises on this deed, you can do two things to stop it. One, put the house in a land trust. Then you can purchase new title insurance in the land trust’s name. The title company will cover any surprises that may pop up here (even though they won’t because you have the property in a trust and all leins would be in the sellers name). I do this when I am unsure about the deed in the futrure (due to the seller being in financial trouble).
