A title search is a detailed examination of the historical records concerning a property.  These records include deeds, court records, property and name indexes, and many other documents.  Because land is permanent and can have many owners over the years, it is possible that others have acquired various rights in the property (such as mineral, air or utility rights), even if the land has never before been built upon.  The purpose of the search is to verify the seller’s right to transfer ownership and to discover any claims, defects, and other rights or burdens on the property.  A title search can show a number of title defects and liens, as well as other encumbrances and restrictions.  Among these are unpaid taxes, unsatisfied mortgages, judgments against the seller, and restrictions limiting the use of the land. American Government Services provides your agency or company with title searches ranging from a simple deed or lien search to those title searches required to issue a full ALTA title policy.  Our title services are comprehensive and meticulous, and are designed to reduce your organization’s exposure thereby mitigating associated risk.  AGS goes the extra mile necessary in many of today’s complex transactions to clear title.  These include obtaining payoff information from lien holders and taxing authorities, personal contact with sellers to obtain unrecorded information, and follow up that is as exhaustive as needed to get the job done.  American Government Services ensures its title review team pro-actively undertakes all appropriate measures to ensure there are no delinquencies or title problems that may act as a cloud on title or would prevent your organization's transaction from closing.
