Why Is It Important To Conduct A Title Search Before Purchasing Real Estate?

It is important to run a title search before purchasing a property to become aware of what outstanding debts are still tied to it. Certain delinquencies such as unpaid taxes and municipal liens attach to the property and will become the new owner’s responsibility.

Why Is It Beneficial To Hire A Title Search Company To Conduct A Search In Maryland?

Enlisting a professional to search through property records is especially important. A title company will be able to decipher things that an inexperienced person will not be able to do. All the necessary documents are not located in one area. The search must be conducted in multiple places to ensure all applicable documents are provided. Abstractors are also familiar with statutes in Maryland which helps identify when a lien needs to be included.
