A title search is a thorough examination of all public records concerning the ownership history of a tract or parcel of real estate. It is conducted to determine whether title to the property is clear and marketable, meaning that there are no liens, encumbrances, or other claims against it that could prevent a buyer from taking clear title.
This search will reveal any issues that could affect the title, such as unpaid taxes, outstanding mortgages, liens, easements, or other encumbrances. We will issue a report that summarizes the findings of the search and identify any issues that need to be resolved before title can be transferred, and will provide the necessary information for the buyer and lender to make an informed decision about the transaction.
In short, a title search is an essential step in the real estate buying process, as it helps ensure that the buyer is receiving clear and marketable title to the property they are purchasing.
Title insurance provides protection to you, the customer, against loss or damage due to title defects. Each policy is backed by a national title insurance company and serves as a written guarantee that the insurer will undertake, at its expense, the defense of your title in legal actions or proceedings alleging the title to be other than as insured.
A policy of title insurance protects against future losses arising from mistakes in recording of legal documents, forged documents, undisclosed or missing heirs, liens, encroachments and fraud.
