Find out the complete history of a property or business.
A good title search can protect you from past and future claims.
Title searches aren't just for buyers. Sellers need to make sure they have a clear title to sell their home quickly. They'll often hire a lawyer to do a title search to ensure they have no liens against the property, such as unpaid taxes or mortgages.
Title searches start with examining records for easements, mortgages, liens, and more. These can be currently active or something that has been filed in the past. While residential titles concern a particular property or address, commercial titles look at all the documents associated with an entire business. This does not limit the search to one particular location. This process can be complicated if the company has changed its name or has filed inconsistently.
In commercial cases, documents are organized by company name and not by the address. Companies may have multiple documents for different properties as well as employment and civil records that do not come up in residential title cases. This is why it can be so important to utilize an experienced commercial title services company to make sure you’re not leaving out crucial information.
