Titles are documents that legally establish ownership and rights to property. Title clearance is a real estate transaction service. It exists to assure lenders, developers, and property owners that there are no issues within titles before they loan or buy property. Many things can affect the legality of a title or its clearance including:

  • Existing liens

  • Failure to pay for prior work

  • Judgments against a current property owner.

  • Past due taxes

  • Easements for utilities

  • Property setback lines

  • Physical inspection results

  • Probates

Title searches must be completed to obtain all necessary, past and present information about land and property. If any issues are found, our experienced team will handle all legal and procedural requirements necessary to remove problems and achieve title clearance. Once a title is free and clear, closing on a property or lending can begin under the supervision of a licensed attorney.

In addition to lending or buying, title clearance serves to settle claims against a title during title actions. Title clearance will establish ownership and settle disputes.

Our attorneys are knowledgeable in real estate law and have over 25 years of experience handling title examination and clearance. Our attention to detail assures that each client’s transaction concludes in a cost effective and timely manner.
