Title Search & Report

A Title Search of a Property is important because it reveals if there are any defects in the title to the property. The title search report includes any property when a preliminary report is requested. With the preliminary report it will show the legal description of the property, the current owner’s name, all underlying encumbrances, liens, judgments, deeds, and any other underlying matters, such as Easements, Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) and Agreements which affect and run with the land.

Some common agreements which run with the land include: view easement or covenants; height restrictions; building limitations; encroachment issues such as fence lines, gardens, and even swimming pools crossing property lines; water well sharing; parking, road maintenance; shared driveway; solar panels; and noise.
