09 Oct Title Searching, the Convenient Way
Title searching is one of the most crucial parts in tax lien property investment. Years ago this task was painstaking. It has even eaten up every tax delinquent investor’s time for leisure. Now, because of the technological advancements in communication and information the task has become easy. The following are the things, which may help you:
The first thing you should do is to check to see if your county’s Clerks office (sometimes called the Recorders Office) makes their records available online. In most counties today, they do have an online option. It is recorded not by property but by the name of the owner. So, all you need to do is go to the grantor/seller or the grantee/buyer index.
Searching online is easy. All you need to do is type the parcel number or name of the person you are looking for and you can have all the information pertaining to the document you are looking for. You will know who the seller/grantor or the buyer/grantee is by opening and reading the documents. Remember to always read the legal description for each property so you may know that if it is really the piece of land that you are seeking out. Follow the trail of ownership and make sure there are no gaps in title
Here are some sites that can help you get started:
In Title searching, all the information you need is readily available to the public, but if not searched for in the right manner this could be a long process. I suggest you familiarize yourself with online document services and use them to greatly speed up your title searches. With spending less time researching a property you will free up more time to find more deals and make more money.
