House Title Search Prevents Unwanted Surprises
Conducting a property title search for your pending home investment is a key step in securing the peace of mind you need to move forward with confidence in your purchase. An expert in title searches will conduct an investigation into the history of the property in order to determine what people and/or business entities may have a financial or legal investment in that piece of real estate. There are three main areas of focus when it comes to this research on your behalf:
- Are there any liens against the property—such as mortgages or back taxes—that need to paid off upon closing?
- Is the seller legally able to sell the property?
- What land restrictions exist for the property (such as easements)?
If you are securing a mortgage for the purchase of your new home, a house title search is typically required. This protects the bank’s investment in you, but don’t forget that it is protecting you as well! To protect yourself even further, consider obtaining title insurance.
