Understanding the Importance of a Title Search

A title search is crucial to ensure you’re making the best financial decision when investing in a property.  The title search will shed light on potential issues such as outstanding debt, clouded titles and boundary line disputes which may sway your decision in moving forward with the property.

What are easements and deed restrictions?

An easement is defined as “a right to cross or otherwise use someone else's land for a specified purpose.”  Easements can be referenced in the legal description of the property and are recorded in county records.  Two of the most common types of easements are utility easements and private easements.  Deed restrictions are rules that pertain to your property and prohibit you from certain actions.  Restrictions are most commonly seen when the property is subject to an HOA.  The HOA sets forth a number of regulations such as what color you can paint your house, the type of vehicles that can be stored on the property, the ability to build a new structure, etc.

Residential vs. Commercial Title Searches

A property will be zoned either residential or commercial. A residential property is zoned specifically for living or dwelling for households. Single-family homes, duplexes and townhouses are examples of residential real estate. A commercial property is one that has the potential to generate profit. Farmland, garages, office buildings, retail stores and hospitals are examples of commercial real estate. A commercial title search will typically uncover documents that you don’t see on residential searches such as leases, assignments of rents, and UCCs. Residential searches are typically completed within 24-48 business hours; however, commercial searches can take up to 72 business hours as they are generally more complex.
