Benefits of a Title Search Attorney
Our real estate lawyers can review a title search for your peace of mind. From the title search, we’ll be able to learn whether the seller actually has the right to sell the property. We’ll also make sure that you receive all the property rights you’re paying for and entitled to get.
A title search will reveal:
- Legal owner of property
- Chain of title
- Unpaid property taxes
