Not all municipal issues are recorded with the official records division of the county clerk. Let us do the research for you to ensure everything is disclosed and resolved prior to settlement.
Thinking about buying a property? How do you know if there will be additional fees or charges? Was the property previously unoccupied due to outstanding and unaddressed issues?
To be sure, a title search will only disclose and report recorded liens subject to a specific property. Few are aware that there can be many unrecorded issues that can result in the imposition of a lien. This includes unresolved violations, building permits that have not been closed properly, or unpermitted structures. The new owner can also become liable for an overlooked utility bill in some cases!
A Municipal Lien Search Will Thoroughly Investigate Any Violations, Permits, Unrecorded Liens, Taxes, and Utilities
Even with the increasing sales of foreclosures in this current market, a lien search may not have been required or completed at times. If you are a buyer, ensure a lien search is done on your next real estate transaction. Better safe than sorry!
