Learn what events can blemish the title of a debtor party.
Traditionally, a search of the public land records necessary to produce a composite of the title required a search of not one, but several public offices. Laypersons unfamiliar with applicable real estate title laws occasionally express dismay about what they regard as the intrusive nature of the information about them that is gleaned from the public records. In their defense, title searchers are motivated not by lurid motives, but by a need for information that has a direct bearing on real estate ownership. So long as laws provide that tax liens, delinquent child support, civil judgments, divorce and other intrusive events mar the title of a debtor party, title opinions and title insurance will continue to delve into and reveal such matters, sensibilities or no. This white paper reviews limits of public records searches and discusses policy definitions of public records.
