There is a typo with my name registered with house. The lawyer never corrected it. How to correct it now?

A few year ago when we bought our house, there is a typo with my name registered with house. I corrected it on lawyer's printed paper on closing day. However, the lawyer did not correct it with title registration. Each time, when I tried to apply line credit or house appraisal. I see my name is wrong. Where and How to correct it now?

I’d get a new one. ESP since last one proved incompetent. But the former lawyer might fix it pro Bono.

How much does it take to correct the TYPO such as from HOA to HAO?
Does it matter to leave it as it is until sale in future?

I sent an email to my former lawyer. I have not received any response from her. I just sent another following up email to see what happens?

Just give them a call and demand correction in timely manner. You can also file complain at law society if you are ignored again and get new lawyer.

What was the cause for the name error? I would assume that your lawyer should've been on top of it and any rectification should be on her dime unless something new comes up.
Hard work, inheritance, interest on interest accumulating, and stock and real estate speculation. It's all good.

It's spelling typo. It should be HAO, but written as HOA; It should be QIANG, written QLANG; These typo appears almost all documents on the closing day. Her assistant let us correct it on the printed paper and told us that it would be corrected, but did not. Several month later after closing day, we received a letter told us the correction was done, but not for the title registration. The typo still appears on today's title.

I can't see the pic, but shall I assume that all you did was just provide them w your IDs and they made the typo? Unless you did something to make them confused, your lawyer is responsible and should be doing everything to fix this error at no cost to you since it was her mistake.
