What is a title search, and how does it work?
Among other items placed of record, when a property is financed or it’s ownership is changed, a record of that transaction should be filed in the local county’s public records. When you have a title search completed, these records are thoroughly researched and examined to ascertain ownership, accuracy, applicable liens, lawsuits, property tax status, and any other claims to the property in question that could affect your purchase or ownership. Industry standards require these records are researched back a minimum of 30 years for residential property.
How long does a title search take?
From the time a request for a residential title search is made and, in the event of a standalone search request without an escrow closing, the service is paid for, the turnaround time to the end product is usually 5-7 business days. Some exceptions may be made for multiple tracts or deed references, etc.
How do I know who the current property owner is?
If you have the property address, you can most likely obtain this information from your local Property Value Administrator’s office.
