Iowa's capital, Des Moines, embodies both modernity and a rich cultural tapestry, with vibrant arts scenes and a thriving economy. Whether exploring its scenic rural vistas or embracing the warmth of its friendly communities, Iowa offers a tranquil yet vibrant slice of American heartland.

Getting Started: An Introduction to Title Searches

A Property Title Search is the process of retrieving all associated documents using the owner's name, address or parcel number. There are many sources for associated documents, such as the local county clerk's office, the county recorder's office and the county tax collector's office. Property Title Searches (Reports) are limited to the time-frame of the search that is ordered, whether it's current owner, two-owner, 30 year, etc.

Why Bother with a Title Search? Unpacking the Risks and Rewards

The title search can reveal issues that a prospective buyer may not know about. Some possible issues include invalid/fraudulent deed transfers, boundary line disputes, missing interest from a prior owner, or unpaid liens. Any unresolved issues and liens can become the responsibility of the new owner.
