A title search, for the purposes of real estate, is an exhaustive search of public records and documents evidencing the history of a piece of property. After a title search is completed, a report, referred to as a title abstract or abstract of title is completed. At Dyer Land Title we have extensive experience in performing a title search you can rely on.

Why a title search?

A title search is commonly performed to determine the relevant ownership interests or regulations that a piece of land may be subject to. Are there any liens attached to the property, such as judgments, back taxes, mortgages or mechanic’s liens? Are there any easements or covenants which the property is subject to? Does an individual have marketable title or are there other ownership interests in the property? These are all questions that a title search can help answer.
