Title Insurance And Examination

The smooth transfer of real estate depends on the property having clear title. After a purchase agreement has been signed, the title must be checked to ensure there are not any clouds or encumbrances, which might affect the sale. The validity of a title is secured through title insurance.

Our Title Practice

Our firm handles every aspect of title work practice, including investigating and title insurance:

Property ownership: We start by verifying the owners of the property.

Chain of title: Our next step is to look into the history of who has owned the property. We want to ensure that there was a clear chain of title, transferring the property over the years.

Conveyances: Once the chain of title has been established, we go through country records to uncover any transfers of ownership interest in property, either in whole or in part.

Liens and judgments: Mechanic's liens and other judgments can also be attached to a property. We will uncover if any liens are present and provide guidance on satisfying these liens and processing releases to clear title.

Loan document verification: We facilitate the closing process by ensuring that the critical details such as a property's legal description and closing fees are accurate as well as ensuring that the lender receives a copy of the title insurance package.

Title insurance: We issue title insurance policies that offer protection against lien defects through Attorneys' Title Guarantee Fund, Inc.

Our goal is to facilitate the closing process, giving commercial and residential real estate buyers the confidence they need to proceed with their purchase.
