What is a title examination?

Simply put, a title examination is the process of searching for any past issues that may have been attached to a property's title. These issues, called encumbrances, may make the property unsuitable for sale or may simply impact the property's ownership. 

Encumbrances include unpaid tax liens or restrictions, past disputes in ownership, or involvement in a lawsuit. A title must be free of all encumbrances to qualify for a transfer of ownership.

The title examination process is one of the most important steps in conducting a closing to transfer ownership of a property.
