Property transactions involve substantial amounts of money. When you buy a property, you need to know that you will get clear and unencumbered title. A title deed search is important because it can determine if there are any defects in title. Defects in title can arise for several reasons. These include incorrect signatures, forgeries, identity theft, fraud, restrictive encumbrances, court judgements, building code violations, covenant violations, unrecorded liens and other unrecorded documents.

Advanced Abstract conducts title deed searches and can find out if there are actual or potential defects in title. A title search starts with the current owners and then searches into the past. An initial title deed search will determine the following:

  • Description and location of the property
  • Current owners name
  • Any encumbrances
  • Any liens
  • Any judgements
  • Easement and right of way documents

If there are any defects in title the Title Company will work with the relevant parties and authorities to resolve the defects in title before closing.

If you buy a property it is a good idea to take out title insurance. Title insurance covers you against financial loss pursuant to title deed defects.  Title insurance does not replace title deed search but rather complements it. It is a single on time premium insurance.

So if you want to be sure your property deal is good and proper you should have a title deed search as well as title insurance.
