Not all municipal issues are recorded with the official records division of the county clerk. Let us do the research for to ensure everything is disclosed and resolved prior to settlement.
So you are thinking about buying a property? How do you know if there will be additional fees or charges? Was the property previously unoccupied resulting from 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. The same follows for unresolved violations, building permits whihc have not been closed properly or unpermitted structures. The new owner can become liable for an overlooked utility bill as well in some cases!
A Municipal Lien Search will thoroughly investigate any violations, permits, unrecorded liens, taxes and utilities that are associated with the property. Even with the increasing sales of foreclosures in this current market at times at closing a lien search may not have been required or completed. To be safe and if you ar a buyer, then please ensure a lien search has/is done on your next real estate transaction. It is always better to be safe than sorry!
**We provide a simple information front page for clear lien searches and also a descriptive “best avenue” second page for searches that have issues**
