Frequently Asked Questions

What is a title search?

After your sales contract has been accepted, a Title Company or attorney will be assigned to perform a title search on the property.  The title search is the process of examining the public records and legal documents to confirm that the seller is the legal owner of the property, what restrictions or allowances apply to the use of the property, such as easements, and to determine if there are any claims or liens against the property.  Once the title search is complete, the title company will issue a report or commitment for title insurance that details the results of the search.
