Title Searches

The process of performing a TITLE SEARCH involves accessing the official public records for the subject property. Each record is a document evidencing an event which occurred in the history of the property. A DEED records an event of property transfer, a MORTGAGE documents the collateral interest of a home loan, and a LIEN documents a claim against the property in favor of another, such as a creditor, vendor, or tradesman. The objective of the Title Search is to establish clear, marketable TITLE by exposing any outstanding claims prior to transfer of title.
