Property Record Search

We perform a detailed search, limited in time, scope and liability, of the public records.  Searches are made of all of the appropriate County offices, including but not limited to the Recorder’s records, Auditor’s records, Treasurer’s records, and Clerk’s records.  A property record search is not underwritten by a national Underwriter.  A property record search is rarely used in a sale or first mortgage transaction due to the limitations noted above.  Property record searches are often used in secondary financing, preliminary investigations, tax sale purchases and targeted search situations.  We show what is set forth in the public records according to the certificate of items covered as set forth in our Property Record Search form.  These forms show what is in the public record without examining the documents and their legal consequences and, therefore, the fee for this form is usually less than the fee for title insurance.  Many items that are covered by title insurance are not included in property record searches.  As with title insurance, our title plant, years of search experience, and attorneys on staff allow us to provide accurate property record searches unmatched in our area.
