What is included in a title exam?
Title examinations are close examinations of all public records that affect the title to the real estate that you are purchasing. Typical searches involve the following:
- Review of past deeds, wills, and trusts to make sure the title has passed correctly to each new owner.
- Review of judgments and financing statements.
- Deeds of Trust.
- Title exams cover what can be found on the public record in each county.
