Any of our readers who have been part of a real estate transaction in New York or New Jersey have probably thought at one point in time that these situations can certainly become complicated in a hurry. Of course, that isn’t the case for every real estate transaction, but there is no denying that these deals are very detail-oriented and oftentimes must be meticulously researched.
Title searches are a part of that process. So, why is a title search part of real estate transactions? Well, simply put, it’s all about making sure that there are no encumbrances or defects in the chain of title for the property in question. When a person or entity is buying property, there needs to be every assurance that ownership will not be disputed at anytime in the future. You want to make sure the property in question has a “clean” title.
