The Consequences of Not Conducting a Property Title Search

Judgments and liens are claims for unpaid debts. Some debts can even attach to the property. Debt that attaches to the property can remain even after the property is sold. In these cases, it becomes the new owner’s responsibility to pay off these liens, even though they didn’t initially incur them. 

Benefits of Hiring a Title Company in Virginia

Hiring a title company to conduct a title search will identify potential issues which may sway the decision to invest in the property. A title search will list potential defects, uncover outstanding liens and bring to light any clouds on the title.
