Unknown Heirs and Missing Interest: The Risks of Incomplete Title Searches

A title report should show all parties who own the property as well as provide a copy of the deed. It’s important to ensure the purported owner has 100% interest. In cases where an owner is deceased, their estate needs to be searched to verify that all heirs are notified and sign off on any transfers.

Liens and Judgments: What They Are and How They Affect Property Titles

Liens and judgments are claims for unpaid debts. Some debts attach to the property. For instance, liens like municipal liens, HOA liens and tax liens don’t just go away if the property is sold either at foreclosure or to a third party. The new owner will be liable to pay these.

Preliminary Judicial Report (PJR)

In Ohio, a Preliminary Judicial Report is completed by a licensed title agency during the foreclosure process. Preliminary reports are those filed at the time of the foreclosure complaint for the use and benefit of the guaranteed party, and the purchaser or the judicial sale. The report must reflect the name of the record owner, a legal description of the land, and a listing of all interests in the property that appear of record.

Supplemental Preliminary Judicial Report (SPJR)

Filed at any point during the foreclosure, these reports update the court on changes made to the property.

Final Judicial Report (FJR)

Showing the final status of the property prior to judgement and the foreclosure sale, Final Judicial Reports are filed with the foreclosure motion.
