What Is A Title Search?
The title company performs a “title search” by searching the land records in the county or city where the property is located. The title company will examine the records to first determine the name(s) of the property owner(s). The title search also exposes any mortgages, liens, unpaid taxes, or judgments that affect the property. Finally, the title search reveals restrictions, covenants, easements and any leases affecting the property.
