Q: I loved your column that deals with wanting up the status of your title on the internet. I discover from your column. I was an underwriter for a single of the nation’s most significant title providers for quite a few years, so these dry issues fascination me.

With reference to that recent column and with goods that display up on a property’s title motivation, I would like to point out that judgment liens and IRS liens versus landowners do not ordinarily appear on the chain of title or on the title commitment. The names of the entrepreneurs down the chain of title have to be searched. These issues attach to the land even however they will not be found in the land data.

A: Thank you for creating. We wrote that column to advise our viewers about the info out there about their home’s title and how to entry it. Owners ought to be conscious of matters that have an impact on the title to their properties. Commonly speaking, most owners know that their house financial loan will show up on title, but they seldom know what other data is readily available and how it is displayed.
