Our team has the right experience to handle the title search process and take care of any issues that it may uncover.
As you can guess from our name, we at Innovative Closing Solutions specialize in real estate closings, and we are here to help make this process as smooth and painless for our clients as possible. One of the most important parts of the closing process, and one that accounts for the vast majority of delays with it, is the title search. Essentially, a title search is an investigation into who actually owns–and thus who has the right to sell–a property.
While this may seem straightforward, property titles can get pretty intricate from a legal standpoint, and it’s important to make sure that the sale is legitimate and above-board. Our team has been working in this business for over 20 years, so we know how to complete a title search efficiently, finding the answers we need in order to move forward with the closing process as soon as possible.
In a property title search, we will look for any and all documents concerning the property in question in order to find out about its ownership history and who currently has the right to sell it. The question of a property’s ownership is less obvious than it might first appear, and it is an important matter from a legal standpoint. To illustrate this point, let’s say that a married couple wanted to sell their home, but the house itself was only in one spouse’s name–in that case, only the spouse whose name was in the title would have the right to sell it, which could make things complicated if the couple were in the process of divorce, etc.
If this sounds like a big headache, don’t worry–our team is here to take care of every part of the title search and the rest of the closing process for you. We are proud to serve the Winston-Salem, North Carolina community, and we encourage you to give us a call to get the expert assistance you deserve.
