RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY TITLE SEARCHES
CURRENT OWNER SEARCH
Current Owner Title Search is ideal for foreclosure auctions, pre-tax auctions, short sales, by-owner transactions, refinance, or checking for clear title. You will receive a Title Abstract Report on all unreleased mortgages, liens and judgments* recorded against the property and the current owner(s). Please note that if the chain of title goes beyond 20 years, the search may require an upgrade to FULL State Statute search.
TWO OWNER SEARCH
Two Owner Title Search is also ideal for foreclosure auctions, pre-tax auctions, short sales, by-owner transactions, refinance, or checking for clear title. You will receive a Title Report on all unreleased mortgages, liens and judgments* recorded against the property and the most recent two owner(s).
Please note that if the chain of title goes beyond 20 years, the search may require an upgrade to FULL State Statute search.
FULL TITLE SEARCH/FORECLOSURE/30-YEAR TITLE SEARCH
Full Title Search is a great option for bank owned properties, foreclosure auctions, and is usually a requirement for Title Insurance, Purchases, Title Opinions and evidence for Marketable Title.
You will receive a Title Report on all unreleased mortgages, liens and judgments* recorded against the property and on all current and prior owners for 30 years. Please, note that if the chain of title requires us to research beyond 30-years in order to reach a “good stop” deed, the search may require an upgrade in price according to the number of years required to be searched, whether or not there are chain splits, and depending on the difficulty of the search.
LEGAL & VESTING SEARCH
Legal & Vesting Search details the owner of record and legal description of the property. You will receive a copy of the current deed including the legal description as recorded on the deed.
PUBLIC RECORDS RESEARCH
Document Retrieval Search is a search for any specific document in the public records. This may be ordered by providing us with the “book and page number” for a specific document, or by providing another sufficient description of the specific document requested, including the office in which the document is recorded. You will receive a copy of the document requested, if found, or a report of “no find” if the document doesn’t exist of record.
LOCAL LIEN SEARCH
Local Lien Search is a search of UCC, State and Federal Tax Liens and Judgment Liens on an individual or company, of record in the Register of Deeds Office at the county level. Please note that this does not include a search of the civil courts.
CIVIL COURT SEARCH
Court Research is a search of county level civil courts. Because the court structure in different counties can vary slightly, this is a highly customizable search, and may either constitute a search for a specific case, or a date-range search for judgments against a particular individual or company. Because the nature of these searches varies widely, we require detailed information about the information and copies requested at the time of the order.
Courts searches may include:
Probate Court (sometimes included with Chancery Court)
Circuit Court (Court of General Jurisdiction for Civil Cases; may include Divorce cases)
Chancery Court (Upper Court; Equity Court for Civil Cases; may include Divorce or Probate cases)
General Sessions Court (Lower Court; Small claims)
*Civil courts are not searched as a part of a title search in accordance with TN Code § 25-5-101 (2014).
NOTE: Copies of all deeds in the title chain and unreleased liens reported are included in all title search reports.
NOTE: Forefront Abstract provides a high quality abstract of documents found of record from various public records agencies. Title Abstract Reports are not Title Opinions, and Forefront Abstract is not responsible for interpreting the intention of recorded documents, nor for the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in the documents which are recorded in the public records.
