Title Examination (page-by-page review for defects)


Title Examination combines the review of the title search results with page-by-page copy review of the search package. The goal behind the Title Examination is to verify that the mortgage the client is buying is enforceable. For REO properties, the Title Exam reviews liens that survived the foreclosure, as well as possible defendant-servicing issues. For Reverse Mortgage title examination, specific aspects of the reverse mortgages are reviewed for errors and enforceability.
