What is a real estate title search?

A title search of real property is performed primarily to answer three questions :
  • Does the seller or grantor have an interest in the property being transferred? 
  • Are there any restrictions pertaining to the use of the land (real covenants, easements, or other servitudes)?
  • Is the property encumbered (mortgages, back taxes, mechanic's liens, or other assessments)?
Anyone can do a title search. Recorded documents concerning conveyances of land are a matter of public record. These documents are maintained in hard copy format or scanned into image files by the recording office in the jurisdiction where the subject property is located. Each record is a document evidencing an event that occurred in the history of the property. When combined, these records create a chain of title for a specific piece of property. Performing a title search involves accessing the official land records provided by the county or jurisdiction.
Who should get a title search?
Anyone who receives real estate, whether it is a purchase or a gift, is well advised to complete a title search for that property. When purchasing real estate, a title search protects the buyer. Not only does it confirm the actual ownership status of the seller, but it also verifies the seller's statements about the quality of the title and encumbrances on the property. When receiving real estate as a gift,  a title search is also in the recipient?s best interest. Real estate can carry burdens that may turn a gift into a nightmare.
