TITLE SERVICES

A title is an abstract concept that signifies one or more individuals own the property listed on the face of the title. State laws vary regarding exact procedures for effectively recording title to property, however a majority of states agree that each transfer of title must be recorded in a county recorder's office for an owner to hold valid title. Before you purchase a property, confirm that the seller holds valid title to the property. A title insurance company will search the property's title index for you for a fee, or you can visit a county recorder's office and search the title index.
