Yorktowne Real Estate Settlement Services will help protect you and make recommendations to insure you against the most unforeseen problems which could arise from a poor title search and settlement experience.
After your sales contract has been accepted, Yorktowne Real Estate Settlement Services will search the public records to look for any problems with the home’s title. This search typically involves a review of land records going back many years.
Typically, more than 1/3 of all title searches reveal a title problem that Yorktowne Real Estate Settlement Services will fix before you go to closing. For instance, a previous owner may have had minor construction done on the property, but never fully paid the contractor. Or the previous owner may have failed to pay local or state taxes (see why you need title insurance for some other common title problems). Yorktowne Real Estate Settlement Services seeks to resolve problems like these before you go to closing.
