Do I need to have a title search when I buy real estate?

Yes, we recommend that these be done. When purchasing real estate, you are buying the legal right to control and dispose of the property. Title searches involve an examination of the public records to determine whether any defects or encumbrances exist in a given property’s chain of title. A typical search in a transaction will go back forty (40) years.
